Leroy Razzasque Days Festival Good for Local Business

Festivals are common this time of year in Northern Michigan, but Leroy is hosting an event with a not-so-common name.

Razzasque Days kicks off Friday

A softball tournament with more than 100 teams, parade, and 40 vendors will flood the streets.

It’s capped off with a special concert Saturday.

Razzasque Days has meant a big boost for local businesses, like Mr. Pibs restaurant, for more than 40 years.

“This is one of our busiest weekends,” he says. “We gear up. We have about 25 employees and they work the weekend because we are busy. It brings in people from all over. All the local businesses are very busy that weekend.”

So what does Razzasque mean?

Nobody seems to have a straight answer.
