Approximately 900 people attended Arts du Jour Thursday evening outside the Royal Oak Library, including Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson.
"We're at the mercy of the weather out here," Patterson said. "But I like the new location. It gives us more room to spread out."
The event featured more than 50 restaurants and eateries, live entertainment and art exhibits in the hopes of raising $500,000 to benefit local charities.
