Hot Cars to Hot Dogs: What's happening this week in the Blue Water Area

Even though this weekend is the last one for the month, there's still plenty of time left to celebrate summertime. The Blue Water Area has quite a few things happening over the weekend to finish up July and welcoming in August.



Come see what Port Huron has to offer, view the many cars, see old friends and make new ones this Saturday. The MainStreet Memories Car Show will many have sweet machines of the past up to modern times to check out downtown starting at 10am and through the afternoon. Find out more at their website.


How long will a cardboard boat float? How fast can an outhouse move? And, most importantly, who will be the next King and Queen of Bologna. All these questions and more will be answered at the Yale Bologna Festival this weekend. This 3-day weekend event closes the streets of Yale's downtown and transforms the community of just under 2,000 to a gathering of over 20,000 Bologna starved party-goers! Find out more at the Yale Bologna Festival website. You can also download the schedule here

The water is gonna roar and there's a party on the shore at St. Clair's Riverfest this weekend.


On the St. Clair River thundering powerboats charge in a race to be the fastest machine on the water! On land, there will be a carnival midway along with live music from headlines Great White on Friday and Detroit's own Sponge on Saturday. Admission to the races and concerts are FREE!

Port Crescent State Park takes a blast to the past this Saturday at the annual Vintage Camper Show. Last years saw Tin Can Tourists bringing close to 100 cool, classic and kitschy vintage trailers and campers to the park to show off and have people check out. Visit and see how your grandparents luxury camped. 


Another port along the eastern shores is having a party too. Starting Friday at 5pm with a barbecue and a beer tent, The Port Sanilac Summer Festival kicks off and runs through Sunday.
