Traverse City Music Festival Filled with Highlights

The sounds of live music can be heard throughout Traverse City this weekend.

The Traverse City Music Festival was in full swing today at the Northwest Michigan Fairgrounds in Traverse City.

This morning local bands competed in the Battle of the Bands.

Other events include a charity silent auction and pet adoption.

Organizers say their goal is to showcase all of the local music talent Northern Michigan has to offer.

"This brings all of the local talent and Michigan talent to Northern Michigan. Normally we have to travel downstate to Grand Rapids and metro Detroit to see great local acts and we're trying to bring that local talent to Traverse City," said promoter Wendy Harvey. 

The festival will be highlighted with a concert from county super-star Tyler Farr tomorrow night.
