Mesick Celebrates 60th Annual Mushroom Festival

Every year people across Northern Michigan look forward to one sneaky, spring time delicacy: The morel mushroom.

This weekend Mesick is celebrating with their 60th annual Mushroom Festival!

Families can enjoy carnival games and rides, the flea market, and plenty of events throughout the weekend.

Friday night the festival takes over Walter Street for Friday Night Live and the Burning of the Shroom.

“It’s a lot of work, but it’s very fulfilling. You get to give back to the community and that’s what we’re here and all about. All of the profits from this goes back into the community for the Lions Club. We take in the money and we give it all back throughout the year,” said Gilbert Hall, vice president of the Mesick Lions Club.

The festival runs through Sunday.
