Lots going on folks, lots going on. We at N3 World Headquarters and Corn Consumption Center as always, have our ears (pun intended) to the ground in our attempt to bring you the highlights of the weekend. A weekend that while bringing endless possibilities both inside and out has been pared down to three highlights, a triple play of options each unique in both setting and style.
If you’ve never been to the White Cloud Pow Wow make it a point to attend this year. This is a two day celebration of Native American culture combined with honoring the Military Order of the Purple Heart. There are ...
...vendors, food, some outstanding dancing and rituals and you really need to view the Grand Entry at 1pm and 6pm Saturday and Noon Sunday.
And if you see a really busy looking guy buzzing about answering questions and keeping things organized? That’s Gene Reid who has been putting this event together for years. He’s also a Purple Heart Recipient, a premier carver and one of our favorite story-tellers.
Rolling on the River.
The 6th annual Muskegon River Clean-up takes place Saturday so bring your kayak, canoe, jet ski, boat or inner tube to the Bridgeton Boat Launch from 9:30am-noon and participants are eligible for prizes including a couple of donated kayaks and gift certificates and as a special bonus, once you get to Maple Island there will be hot dogs.
Man. a float down the Mighty Mo, a chance to help clean up our wonderful river, a shot at a kayak and even a free hot dog.
Life is certainly sweet.
Tennessee, I Hear You Callin’ Me
East Tennessee State University offers a degree in Bluegrass Music.
Yep, Bluegrass Music.
We first heard about it when fiddler extraordinaire and Luthier Concert favorite Isaac Smith told us he was attending there a few years back.
Well, Zellie’s Opry House in Howard City is hosting the ETSU Bluegrass Pride Band, a trio of talented pickers including local guy Calder Baker along with Ben Watlington, and Max Etling.
If you’ve not been to Zellie’s it’s located in a great old building at the east end of downtown on Edgerton.
Doors open at 6pm. Concert starts at 7pm.
Cultural event, Environmental action, and some finely played tunes on tap.
In between, make sure you visit one of our fine local eateries for food and drink this weekend.In fact try to make it a dining trifecta grabbing a little breakfast at the Grant Depot, for lunch check out Joaquin’s new digs (The Commons) in Fremont, then later on pop down a pizza and one of the innovative (and tasty) draws at Newaygo Brewing Co.
Now let's get out there and revel folks.
