First off it is Blessing of the Bikes weekend in Baldwin.
That means there will be considerable motorcycle traffic about and our local establishments that deliver great food and beverage will likely be inundated with two wheeled travelers in need of refreshment and sustenance.
This event spawns a lengthy marketplace along M-37 beginning far south of the town Of Baldwin and extending its reach way north with small venues hawking a variety of goods. It also brings a lot of tourist money to the city and the towns along the way.
So let’s not be in a hurry when met with a traffic tie-up here or there and be aware that timing when it comes to dining in one of our fine fooderies may be essential. Remember, these folks are merely visiting and we are privileged to live here 24/7.
Oh and if you might be heading farther north than our Lake County neighbor?
Might think about an alternate route.
The Family Expo is a free friendly fun festival that not only lays out an absolute boatload of activities, giveaways, raffle prizes, snacks, and more but also gives goers access to a ton of information about the initiatives and programs that help promote healthier living and improve the quality of life in our community.
John Waite is one interesting cat. We spoke with him as he and his band were meandering their way across Ohio for a trio of shows in Michigan including Saturday’s performance at the Dogwood. Though known for his hit ‘Missing You’ Waite’s musical resume runs deep from his days with the Babys through the decades of solo work and collaborations that have him packing venues whenever he tours.
Like rock and roll with a bluesy touch or two and some acoustic flavoring tossed in?
See this show.

Speaking of two wheeled wonders (well it was a lot earlier in the story but hey…) It is the season opening weekend at Big Air our local Motocross venue. If you like or do motocross you are likely already heading there but if you’ve never been it’s a slice of excitement in our own backyard.

Yard Sale season is upon us. This weekend if you like this kind of thing Little Whitefish Lake is having their Community Yard Sales Friday and Saturday from 8am-6pm. This might help get you prepped for the world famous Hess Lake sales coming June 7&8.
We have this ongoing theory that every yard/garage sale must include at least one set of long neglected exercise equipment.
