This annual summer festival returns May 31-June 2, 2013, with some new additions the whole family with enjoy!

Get your family ready for some summer fun at the 29th annual Grosse Ile Islandfest, May 31-June 2, 2013.

This year's Islandfest features loads of family-friendly activities from past years – including a carnival, historical tours of the island and a parade – along with some new additions.

Come out for some live musical performances or a fine art show – let the little ones cheer at the vintage baseball game. This year's live music acts feature Ed Pelts, DR5 Band and more.

Light up your weekend with the annual fireworks show at 10 p.m. on Saturday. Give your youngster something to talk about – take a ride in a helicopter or an airplane with them.

Fulfill your sweet tooth with a delicious elephant ear or cotton candy. Or stop by the food vendor area to pick up a taco from Bowdler's Mexican Stand or grab a pepperoni roll from Mr. G's Concession.

The Grosse Ile Islandfest also offers attractions for adults as well; this year's event features steak dinners and a VFW beverage tent. Bring your little one along to the steak dinner – a children's hot dog meal is available.

Admission is free. The fun takes place at the Grosse Ile Municipal Airport at the following times:

  • Friday: 4-11 p.m.
  • Saturday: 7 a.m.-11 p.m.
  • Sunday: 7 a.m.-4 p.m.
