It’s June and a perfect evening with small swells on Lake Huron and clear skies overhead. Those of us brave enough...or stupid enough, the jury was still out on that one...to tough out the winter from hell on the island so deserved an evening like this. A year ago I lived in Chicago and thought I knew all about snow, hideous winters and ice. Yeah, right.
The Lilac Festival is in full swing with fudges...that’s what we call the tourists who visit our lovely island because they buy so much fudge, nearly ten tons a year would you believe. Holy cow, now that’s a lot of fudge.
In the fall we have the Music Festival with folk, country, rock, blues, bluegrass, classical, jazz and country. We have a Fudge Festival to celebrate fudge…that’s my favorite festival around here. Who doesn’t love great fudge? And we always celebrate the Fourth of July, Memorial Day and Labor Day with great cookouts and parades and lots of terrific food.
So that’s the festival lineup here on Mackinac, what about in your neck of the woods? What is your favorite Summer Festival? Is it a State Fair? Church get-together? Ice Cream Social? Antique Festival? Let me know and I’ll give away a striped beach towel from the comments. After all there is no better festival than a day at the beach.
