2004 Olympic All-Around Champion Carly Patterson is also there, meeting with and inspiring young fans.

“It’s just fun to watch these athletes living out their dream and showing off their hard work, it’s kind of at the beginning of the season and they’ve been working so hard to get to these routines and now they can finally show everybody what they’ve been working on, so it’s always fun,” Patterson told WZZM.

Tickets are available at the DeVos Place box office.
