Bringing back hair teasing memories by paying tribute to the music, trends and events of the 1980's, this Frankenmuth festival held in the Harvey Kern Pavilion in Heritage Park has it all!

Remember the days of Pac Man, Big Hair, Leggings and Slouched Socks, Miami Vice, Banana Hair Clips, Valley Girls and Jelly Shoes????

There were many activities available to the crowd from getting your hair "did" to getting a massage to the Rubik's Cube Challenge!
