Meet local celebrity and adventurer Yoda the Tortoise

It has been four months since Yoda the Tortoise went missing during the winter in the Upper Peninsula, spurring a community to come together to find him. (They found him three days after he went missing, thankfully.) These days, Yoda is back home safe and sound with his family living it up as the temperatures rise in Northern Michigan.

On July 6 during the Manistique Independence Day celebration, you can meet Yoda at 205 Cedar Street. He will be on site from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and during the Independence Day parade.

This also is a great opportunity to pick up a copy of the children’s book that was based on his adventures, “Yoda’s Yooper Adventure,” which was written and edited by his owners, Sarahjean Adolphus and Alicia Vargo, with illustrations by local artist Mary Weber.
