ericyoung@ogemawherald.com 989-387-9036

“There’s just nothing to do.” It’s a comment we hear a lot, especially from our youth. But if you live or vacation in Northern Michigan and honestly believe those words, you’re not looking hard enough. There are so many activities spread throughout the summer, things for people of all ages to enjoy. From county fairs to 5Ks to fishing derbies and more, the summer-

time is full of fun family activities. Our Up North Leisure Guide, which provides information about events occurring between May and October. The events center around our coverage area, including Oscoda, Ogemaw and Arenac counties, as well as some of the surrounding area. If you’re looking for something to do, you’ll find countless ideas in the pages that follow. We encourage you to take some time while you are enjoying your sum-

Keep up on the area events:

mer actitivies to stop at our great local businesses. These businesses make up a large part of the communities we live in, and continue to help our communities thrive. It is with their help that we are able to provide you with this calendar of events every year. So take some time, browse through the pages and plan out your summer activities. Some events may be added after the publication of the Up North Leisure Guide, but don’t fret. We will update the

lists the last week of each month in each of our newspapers, the Oscoda County Herald, the Ogemaw County Herald and the Arenac County Independent. To subscribe to any of these papers, call 989-3450044. Enjoy your summer, and don’t forget to share your memories with us. Send your photos to info@ogemawherald. com or share them on our Facebook page and we might just use some of them in one of our newspapers.
