The Summer’s first free public bonfire will be tonight from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Stearns Park Beach. The Ludington Convention and Visitors Bureau will be hosting a series of 3 bonfires on the last Thursday of each month from now through August. Locals and visitors are welcome to bring chairs and blankets as well as their own food and beverages. The park concession stand will also be open. The bonfire will feature live music from local bands and, of course, a beautiful lake Michigan sunset. 


Sailboat Tips on Lake Michigan

A sailboat tipped over Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. on Lake Michigan in-between Epworth and Stearns beach. The boat was a 15 foot Sunfish sailboat. These boats are manufactured to right themselves in the event of a tip, but the Coast Guard told WMOM that in this case the removable keel had fallen out. They speculate this was preventing the boat from being able to readjust automatically. The boater was a 61 year old man visiting from out-of-town. He suffered no injuries. 


Agricultural Trail Grand Opening

This week marks the official opening of the Mason and Oceana County Agricultural Trail at Amber Elk Ranch. The trail provides an opportunity for people of all ages to experience and learn about the agricultural diversity of our area. Stops on the trail include farms, dairies, markets, and other landmarks in Ludington, Pentwater, and surrounding cities. Trail visitors will get to interact with nature and take part in activities ranging from hand-feeding live elk to eating ice cream at Ludington’s House of Flavors.
