July 2019 - July means fireworks and summer vacations. Michigan has it going on in every part of the state. .


There is a Pattern Welded Damascus Steel Forging Course at the Nahma General Store. Pattern Welding, Bladesmithing and Tool Making are included.

A great mix of music, fireworks and cool beaches can be found in Beulah for the 4th of July weekend.  The Standing Hamptons perform Blues and Rock.

The 43rd Annual Harrisville Kids Parade kicks off on July 6, a long time tradition.

The Good Hart General Store is mid-way along the Tunnel of Trees and is the place to get the best Pot Pies on earth. I will be there for a book signing on July 13, 2pm-5pm.

The First Official Rebaska Canoe Race in Michigan will take place on July 26. These "voyager" or cargo style canoes are 26 feet long and 4 feet wide. The 9 person teams can make them fly on the 43 mile course.

Pause a moment to remember the fallen. The War Dog Memorial is a cemetery and memorial that honors the thousands of canine soldiers who didn't make it home. Just south of Milford at Milford Road and 11 Mile Road.
