¡¡¡2008 Festivals start this weekend!!!

Its that time of year… Festival Season is beginning! And yes, I mean Festival with a capital “F”!
We got our copy of the 2008 LSJ Greater Lansing 24/7 with the Sunday Paper. Right there on the front is “63 Festivals – Don’t miss out on these celebrations”. So, here we go with some highlights!

If you’ve never been to a festival, or don’t know where or when they are try the Michigan Fun Site to find the one, or ones, for you!

Meanwhile, I’ll be going to these rolickin’ good times!
