Over the weekend, the twin cities of Houghton and Hancock, were a-buzz with Bridgefest activities, many of which included food and all which included fun. Thanks to Taana Kalliainen those that didn't get to attend, can still get a glimpse of some of the activities that took place. She snapped a number of photos of the parade that went from Houghton, over the Portage Lift Bridge and on into Hancock. She even captured the helicopter rides as they were going past the bridge and then a shot closer in. Too bad Taana didn't have a super telephoto lens, we might have been able to see who was enjoying that ride in the whirlybird! :-> Of course, no Bridgefest celebration is complete without a fireworks display and we have Rob Wetton to thank for a shot of those giant sparklers. Looks like fun was had by all that were lucky enough to attend!

It was my first time at the Bridgefest activities in the 25 yeara since it started. When one leaves home from here in the Keweenaw after high school to go off to a big city to make a living you do miss it, but you never realize just how much until you come back home to stay forty years later! So much to do U.P. here leading on up to the Fourth Of July. Fireman's tournament & isn't there even a thing called Pasty Fest?

Sure there is PastyFest. Go to http://www.mainstreetcalumet.com for more information. PastyFest is June 25-26 this year. Be sure to watch the video with Jean Ellis on Fox News Detroit. She's making pasties.
