[Whether it be enjoying a great band, art or partaking in one of Michigan's many summer festivals, there is certainly not a lack of places to go and events to attend in our area. Stay tuned weekly to mybaycity.com. Every Thursday, I'll give you my take on some fun things to do and where my travels might take me!]

So...what's on my agenda for this weekend?? Well, let's see...

I like 80's music, I like free concerts and I do like to be where the fun is. That means I will be in Wenonah Park in Downtown Bay City on Friday, July 27th, 2012 for Rewind By The River
. Featuring THE MEGA 80's,
the gates and beer tent open at 6:00pm. This event is always a great time!
Equally fun, is the MUNGER POTATO FESTIVAL
which opens Thursday, July 26 and runs through Sunday, Jul 29, 2012. You may find me there Thursday night, at the Demolition Derby/Front Wheel Drive Figure 8 Derby
which starts at 7:30 pm. The Hipakritz
play in the beer tent, which should make for a good night all around.
Also at the Potato Festival on Friday, you can catch Steve Armstrong and The 25 Cent beer Band
. On Saturday, the Steel Wheels Band
will be playing. Munger will finish out the festival on Sunday, with both The Josh Ramses Band
and Laurie Middlebrook
. Check out all their events at: www.mungerpotatofest.com.
Saturday sounds like a perfect night to go listen to Double Jack
at Midland Street Pub
located at 610 E. Midland St., Bay City, MI. Double Jack
takes the stage at 9:30 on Friday, 26 and Saturday, July 27.
The 16th annual Nathan Weidner Foundation
barbecue is Sunday, July 29, 2012. Located in Vet's Park in Bay City, MI, this event runs from 11am-6pm. If you have never attended, please check it out if you would like to help a great organization, have a heaping plate of delicious chicken and plentiful sides. Adults $10.00 and Children under 6 years of age are free.
Wherever YOU end up, make it a safe and relaxing weekend!
