Wow, Labor Day Weekend.
The finale of the summer trifecta of holidays and the one that spells the end of this ever fleeting season as we have known it.
Sure there are likely more boat days ahead and we can assume there will be weather conducive for one last tube down the river, and the beaches will still draw folks to enjoy another day at the Big Lake.
But face it, it’s over. Once we hit the finish line of this 3 day sprint to the finish you can kiss goodbye ice cream and wave in pumpkin spice in a plethora of incarnations.
Fall brings it’s natural splendor to this bipeninsular paradise to be sure but when summer departs we all know it’s to be a lengthy sabbatical before she returns.
So time to revel folks. Time to revel.
Whether looking to get some things done around the house, cottage or cabin, hoping to take a stab at some outside fun or just gearing up for some serious revelry there is no better way to start off than a good breakfast, right?
Well we got a good one for you as the annual Fire Department Pancake Breakfast serves up some righteous vittles from 7-11am Saturday.Good food a good cause and a chance to meet the fine fire folks who keep us safe.
Even with breakfast you’re going to be getting hungry by afternoon and a stop at Newaygo Brewing Co will slake your thirst satisfy your culinary cravings and as a bonus provide some really fine listening in the person of rock and roller Nathan Dill charming the Brewaygo crowd with some tantalizing tunes.
Saturday Noon to 4pm.
The Logging Fest begins Friday and runs through Sunday in downtown Newaygo. Lots of activities all weekend with most centered at Brooks Park.
Did you miss the Polish Festival in Grand Rapids , our metro neighbor to the south and feel cheated out of celebrating all things Polish (beer, music, food, beer, etc. ) in an outdoor setting?
Well, nigdy strach.
It seems Muskegon, our metro friend to the west, is putting on their version of this uroczystość.
Hackley Park is the locale for the Muskegon Polish Festival 11 am -11pm Friday and Saturday.
The Driftwood Deck in Croton has Outlaw Express Saturday from 5-9pm and Top Shelf Country from 3-7 Sunday.
And Monday? Well a true bipeninsular biped will walk the Bridge (Mackinac not the Colonial) at least once and you can still get there for the opportunity to take a free stroll on the Mighty Mac. Starts at 7am but no shuttle so you must either plan well (like a ride from the other side) or choose the option of walking halfway then walking back.
Cool thing to do and you might get a chance to chat with the Gov who will be walking it as tradition dictates. Probably not but you never know, right?
