I am always trying to boost the tourism of Northern Michigan, especially Boyne City. Here are a few suggestions to help you plan your next trip:
- You could test the bearing capacity of the ice on Lake Charlevoix like this guy did with his brand new snowmobile:
Or this guy and his ice-fishing shanty:
Chances are, it'll get you on the local news.
-In the spring, we have the Boyne City Mushroom Festival. Yeah, it's not THOSE kinds of mushrooms, unfortunately, although I think whoever is wearing this get-up might have to ingest a few before putting it on:
Reminds me of the Ween classic, "Mushroom Festival In Hell". Great tune. Sad costume.
- You can also bear witness to the time-honored tradition of fudgemaking (just like every other tourist up here). Check it out. Quite a log this guy's working on, huh?
Do not get this confused with the fudgePACKING demonstrations. Those are just plain depressing.
-Finally, cap off your visit with a tour of the nearby East Jordan Iron Works. Haven't you ever wondered where all those great fire hydrants and manhole covers come from? I knew you did! Now's your chance to find out.
Wow, red AND yellow! What will they think of next!?
See, who needs Disney World? Fuck those fuckers and come to God's Country instead!
