If you've never been to the Cheeseburger in Caseville Festival, you definitely must experience it. Wednesday was the popular Parade of Fools and our cameras were there to capture the "Margarita ville" atmosphere to bring back to our readers!

Approximately 60,000 people showed up for the parade and flooded the streets of Caseville with Mardi Gras beads, cheeseburgers and maybe an occasional beer or two! The smell of cheeseburgers infiltrated every step you took through town. I just could not wait to sink my teeth into a yummy burger and that I did!

The schedule of events for the rest of the festival this weekend are listed below as well as the winners from the parade!

Marlo, we were there for the parade but if we weren't able to attend, this article would have made us feel as if we were right there experiencing it. thanks for all you do. my wife and i introduced ourselves to you at the internet cafe, you took a photo of our grandaughter dancing and she asked you for your autograph you made her day by signing her t-shirt thanks for taking the time we knew you were very busy. some of the celebrities we saw that day wouldn't give us the time of day, your very kind and do a wonderful job throughout michigan
