Hundreds of dogs are ready to race in one Northern Michigan community.

The 50th annual Kalkaska Winter Fest kicked off on Friday.

The event includes a number of dog sled races from one dog up to 10-dog teams. This year also features the Midwest American Championship.

The festival draws racers from across the Midwest and Canada and is considered a premiere racing event.

A craft show and food are also part of the event.

The fun lasts from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Organizers want to remind people to leave their dogs at home.
