Manistee National Forest Festival Begins

The Manistee National Forest Festival has returned for another year of fun.

The festival will also help celebrate the 150th anniversary of Manistee officially becoming a city.

There will be plenty of rides, food, music and events from now until Sunday.

There are also more rides than in years past, and the chamber of commerce says they’ve tripled the number of fireworks for this year’s show and synced them up to music.

“People should just come out and celebrate being together and a lot of different events that we have. We’ll have over 50 events this year again and just spend time with your family and friends and enjoy our community, because we welcome everyone here,” said Stacie Bytwork, President of the Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce.
