Are you ready for another

Sizzling Summer of Fun, Sun & Relaxation in Boyne Country? The sun is out, the birds are chirping and the snow is nowhere to be seen. That means only one thing: Possibilities. You see, summer in Boyne Country is more than just another season in just another neck of the woods. Our people have a tendency to dance in the streets; and the thunder you hear rolling in off the water may be followed by cheers of jubilation. We celebrate art and tractors, fast cars and mushrooms ... and strolling our streets can be so much more than a walk. Whether you’re a bachelor up with your buddies for a fishing trip or a family in

town to celebrate one of our many festivals, the Boyne area has the luxury and economy lodging, world-renowned attractions, signature events, great golfing and natural beauty to make your stay a memorable one. Nestled along the southeast portion of Lake Charlevoix, Boyne City and the surrounding communities of Boyne Falls and Walloon Lake are replete with lush lakes, rustic camping opportunities, artisans, fine dining and crisp, clean water for boating and swimming. So, are you ready for possibilities this summer?

DANCIN’ In the streets

“Summer’s here and the time is right” goes the Martha & The Vandellas classic hit “Dancin’ in the Streets.” And, so goes the Boyne City “Dancin’ in the Streets” event on July 28 and Aug. 25 at the 300 Block of Lake St. These two-hour events pack in live music, dancing and tasty treats for a unique community gathering in the SOBO Arts District. “It’s so much fun,” said event organizer Cindi Malin. “How often do you get to close off the street and dance to a live band?” She added, “We just have a really good time.”


Now in its eighth year, “Dancin’ in the Streets” started with little more than two dozen patrons. “Now we have hundreds,” Malin said. “So, we must be doing something right!” Come on down and enjoy this free event for great music, hot dogs, popcorn and refreshments. The event is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on both days. The entertainment will be announced as the date draws nearer.

Boyne falls polish festival

The 37th Annual Boyne Falls Polish Festival celebrates the best of music, food and fun events on Aug. 4, 5, 6, & 7 in the peaceful village of Boyne Falls. Stretching from Thursday to Sunday, the Polish Festival offers numerous attractions which kick off Thursday evening with the live oldies music and a car show and car cruise. On Friday, the fun starts early with a 3-on-3 shoot-out, kids’ fun with the Youth Day events, a parade just for the little ones and a horse pull in the evening. On Saturday, the day kicks off with a 5K cross country run followed by the Grand Royale Parade. The fun continues with the clas-

sic tractor pull and the evening is topped off with the annual motorcycle show. A special Sunday mass kicks off the final day of the Polish Festival at 9 a.m. under the tent. Later that morning is the ever fierce competition with the horseshoe pitching tournament. A 4-wheel-drive mud run wraps up the afternoon. Throughout the long weekend event there will be a Polka Tent with music and beer. Also, old engine shows will be going on throughout the weekend. For more information on this year’s event, go to
