As the calendar turns to Fall, there’s lots of fun for all!

There’s still time for you to check out Harvest Days on the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail…then enjoy breathtaking views at Crystal Mountain on Friday. There’s a great day planned for the whole family at Chrystal Mountain Saturday, or do some unique shopping in Mackinaw City. Then, wrap up the day with a night of laughs in Bay Harbor!


Join Lite 96.3 and the American Cancer Society for a Relay For Life event…. a Survivor and Luminaria Parade, Friday, September 25th, 8pm

This year, we were unable to do the traditional Relay For Life, but that doesn’t mean the need to help end cancer isn’t there still.  So this year, we are going to do something totally different.

The event is Friday night, September 25th from 8-10pm at Nubs Nob. Tim Nixon will be there and we hope you will be too.

The parade will meander up Nubs Nob Drive, through the woods. It will be decorated with luminaria honoring those who have survived cancer and to remember those we have lost. And that’s how you can participate.

Purchase a luminaria to benefit the American Cancer Society. Decorate your bag and it can become part of the memorial parade. You can pick up a bag at either the Petoskey or Harbor Springs Chamber of Commerce. Bags are $10 and you can donate at or email tamray65@hotmail.

You can also register your car for the parade at too. Decorate your car in purple and put a sign on your front door honoring your cancer survivor. The drive through begins at 8pm and each survivor will get a goodie bag at the end of the parade.

It will be a beautiful evening tribute and one we hope you join us for.
