People from all over the country came to enjoy one of Michigan's largest winter festivals this weekend.

Houghton Lake was crawling with outdoor activists as the 63rd Annual Tip Up Town Festival kicked off.

This is the first of two big weekends of fun in Houghton Lake. Hundreds of people bundled up in their warmest clothes and huddled behind a fence to watch snowmobile drag racers put the pedal to the metal on Houghton Lake.

The Chamber of Commerce tells 9&10 News that they are thrilled the lack of snow didn't scare anyone away.
