The Munising area has some great, unique events throughout the year. They include festivals, marathons, celebrations and competitions. To improve the Explore Munising website, and make it more user friendly, we have made some recent changes! If you visit the Events page, you’ll notice it is now categorized by season. (Only in Munising will you have snow events listed under “Spring.”) Once you choose a particular season it will display 3 months of events happening in and around the Munising area. Each event listed will display the date, location and any other specifics. In the right column of the webpage you’ll see featured events – ones unique to the area. Also, starting with the August ’09 events, we will be posting a printable PDF each month so you can have a copy for yourself. Post it on your fridge or pack it in your suitcase. Another section we have is the Munising bulletin board webpage. This newer page displays area event flyers and posters, kind of like a community board. We’d love to hear from you about these changes. Just comment below.
In other news, the Alger County Fair (in Chatham) begins tomorrow and runs through the weekend. Go check it out! This weekend is also the start of August! Ugh! We’re still waiting for the summer to begin. Our temperatures continue to be a roller coaster but what can you do? The Upper Peninsula is known for unpredictable weather and as they say around here: “The local weatherman has the hardest job.” (They also take a lot heat.) Big ol’ Lake Superior can really alter the weather patterns and make a 7-day forecast unpredictable. Gotta love the U.P.!
