59th Annual Bass Festival Hosted in Mancelona

Festival season is underway in Northern Michigan, and one small town is excited to celebrate a local fish. 

This weekend is Mancelona’s 59th annual Bass Festival and they hope the nice weather will bring in large crowds.

Many activities started this afternoon and will continue through the weekend.

The festival offers everything from a large parade to a crafters market.

Organizers say the event is important to bringing people into the small town, especially if there’s nice weather. For more information about the festival, visit the Bass Festival website.
