Finishing July and Greeting August In The Blue Water Area

Even though this coming Sunday marks the end of 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.

Imagine gliding across the cool, refreshing waters of Lake Huron with friends and family this weekend. Taking in the fresh air and the laid back pace as sunshine shimmers and sparkles of the lake. Whether you're new to kayaking or an old pro, you can experience that at the Port Austin Kayak Rendezvous, which starts this Friday and runs through the weekend. Paddle by the sights that the tip of Michigan Thumb's shoreline has to offer along with many other activities such as equipment demonstrations, food, fun camping and dancing.  For more info contact the Port Austin Chamber of Commerce at 989-738-7600.

The fun isn't limited to just the water in Port Austin this weekend either. Port Crescent State Park takes a blast to the past this Saturday at the annual Vintage Camper Show. Last year's even saw Tin Can Tourists bringing more than 85 cool, classic and kitschy vintage trailers and campers to the park to show off and have people check out. Visit and see how grandpa 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. The fun for the weekend includes Kid's carnival games, a watermelon eating contest, inflatables, a karaoke contest and live music. 

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
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 along Quay Street starting at 10am and through the afternoon. Find out more at their website.

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 Fuel on Friday and Dokken on Saturday. Admission to the races and concerts are FREE! See the whole schedule of action at the Riverfest website.

Looking ahead to the first full weekend in August there's the Port Sanilac Blues Festival, the Sanilac County Historical Museum and Village is hosting a Civil War Weekend, the Fine Art Street Fair returns to Lexington and the Ribs On The River BBQ Competition is happening in Marine City.
