Festival Weekend

We have an exciting weekend of festivals lined up for us Michiganders.
Today kicks off the National Asparagus Festival in Shelby, Michigan (about 30 miles north of Muskegon). Activities of interest include farm tours, asparagus dinner, 5K, parade and a bull riding extravaganza.
Today also kicks off the Gizzard Festival in Potterville, Michigan (about 15 miles south of Lansing). Besides gizzard eating and beer drinking, there is a 5K, parade, basketball tournament, car show and gizzard eating contest. It might be worth the drive to watch the contest!
