Alanson comes alive with great activities and music this weekend. How about a little mystery with the Little Traverse Civic Theater? Northport goes to the dogs on Saturday, and if you just can't wait for hockey season, then check out a fun show at the City Opera House! Then, starting on Sunday, things are just Ducky in Bellaire!

The Alanson Riverfest showcases everything that makes the Inland Water Route stand out as an area with tremendous history, community pride and vibrancy. Events include a teen dance on Thursday, The Friday night duct tape boat race and lighted boat parade, and great Motown music on Saturday, plus the rubber duck race and a performance from the Petoskey Steel Drum band on Sunday!

Ashland Falls Presented by the Little Traverse Civic Theater

Pet of the Week 

HI, I'm Bentley and I'm a six month old Miniature Pinscher mix. I'm cute, cute, cute! I'm also very lovable and sweet. I'm okay with other dogs as long as I can meet them first, but because I like to play a lot, your dog will need to be okay with that. I come with free training classes that I look forward to attending, only because I want to learn how to be a good very boy. I'm a smart little guy, so it shouldn't take me to long to reach that goal. I want to be under your tree this holiday season with a big bow around my neck and a gift tag that says "Forever Yours!" Read more about him here.
