It's about that time!

What festivals are held near you?
When are they?
Would you recommend attending the festival or skipping it?

The first one, I never get to go to. I always think about it the day AFTER it has happened. I'm told it's tons of fun though.

Pella Tulip Time

We are definitely going to this one this year. I never realized how big it was. I know there is a hot air balloon museum in this town, but I have never been.

National Balloon Classic: flight, ride, Indianola, Iowa

Finally, this one is a family favorite. We go every year. The apartment I lived in several years ago was right across the street, and the smells of funnel cakes lured me in. We have been going every year since.

I don't really know of many festivals around here. I know they do a big music festival at the Porcupine Mountains, but I've never gone.

Jennifer, how far from Marquette are you? They have a few fun fests in the summer. Usually a big one for the 4th and then later in the summer they have Seafood Fest.

I'm sure there are a ton of festivals here, we just don't really know about them, I do know in September we have a Highland Festival and Games, hopefully we'll get to that this year. We do have a July 4th Street Fair type thing we always go to as well. It's small but we have a good time. It's best to go late in the afternoon for dinner, go home to relax, then go back for fireworks.
