The 2013 Great Wakes Festival kicked off last night with Paella in the Park, but thousands came to the open space for the second day of festivities.

Today the largest Midwest stand-up paddle board race and expo drew people of all ages to Grand Traverse Bay.

And tonight, Porterhouse Productions was expecting large crowds at their grand opening of a first of it's kind tent structure in the country.

It's also going to be the scene of 50 plus musicians here from all over to entertain the crowds.
