Each Sunday will feature 4 or 5 local musical artists… several crafters, food and fun for the kids. Facepainting, pony rides, crafters, artisans and food vendors throughout the day. The Music kicks off from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Vendor space still available. We’re still working on Health Screenings from McLaren Hospital. The purpose of this event is to give The Dog Days of summer a final wag and raise funds to benefit the Port Huron and Port Huron Northern Music programs. Eventually the organizers would like to generate the funds to create a perpetual scholarship for Interlochin, Blue Lake Fine Arts or a music camp of the students choice.
