Bud Bash Rocks Houghton Lake

Hundreds of party goers of all ages flocked to Houghton Lake today for the 2010 Bud Bash. The yearly bash started as a party at the Limberlost bar and then as progressively moved into the water and is now a 2-day lake party. The bash has a history of rowdy and lewd behavior that has turned off many residents. But the large crowd does bring an economic boost to the area and police say it has seemed to calm down in the past few years. Michigan State Police Lieutenant Pat Boyd says the police ticket over 100 violations a year, mostly for public nudity and underage drinking.
