From the Blues to the Blue and the Grey: What's happening in Port Sanilac this Weekend

From the Blues to the Blue and the Grey. Port Sanilac has it happening this weekend.


On Friday, take a tour of the Port Sanilac Lighthouse. Now a private residence, the lighthouse has rarely been open to the public before so it's a unique chance to check out on Friday through September 1st. Tours are from 11am to 2pm.  Admission is $5 for adults and children 12 & under are free (must meet height requirements.)


The boogie is going to be full effect on Friday along the lakeshore. The Port Sanilac Blues Festival kicks off at 3pm. The headliner for the evening is Mr. Larry McCray.


The Arkansas-born, Michigan-based singer/guitar player has been playing soulful blues in the vein of B.B. King and Albert King for close to three decades. In 2014 Larry was voted Top Guitarist in International Blues Matters' annual writer's poll.

The music, food and craft beer tents continues through Saturday evening with the Mike Wheeler Band closing out the festival.

It's a battle of the Blue and the Grey in Port Sanilac this weekend too. Check out Civil War Days at the Sanilac County Historical Museum and Village on Saturday & Sunday. This year, the reenactors will recreating the drama of Battle of Shiloh.

Looking for a bite to eat while in Port Sanilac? Let us suggest the tasty seafood at the Stone Lodge, some good old fashion homemade eats at Mary's Diner and the awesome barbecue at the Portly Pig.

Feel like driving into the sunset while visiting Port Sanilac? Check out the Hi-Way Drive-In. Located nine west on M-46, this locally owned outdoor theater is only one of the nine still in operation in the state of Michigan. Opened in 1947, it's also the state's oldest operating drive in. It's a bit of working Americana. A visit to it is family memory that will last ages.
