Houghton Lake’s Tip Up Town Expected to Bring in Customers for Local Businesses


Houghton Lake’s Tip Up Town is set to start Jan. 22-23 and Jan. 29.

Not only does the festival an impact on the community, but it also has an impact on the local businesses during both weekends.

Lyman’s on the Lake Resort says this weekend is one of their busiest of the year.

Along with running the shop, they’re also sponsoring the festival’s ice fishing competition.

The owner of Lyman’s on the Lake Kurt Beachnau says Tip Up Town gives the community a chance to show more than just their fun winter festivities.

“What we want to showcase is that it’s a fun place to be in the winter, but we have a lot to offer in the summertime, too,” said Beachnau “It really does serve a dual purpose.”

Beachnau says the festival gives a lot of local businesses a boost during what’s normally a slow season.
