Grab the cooler and bust out the bathing suits – it’s summertime! Celebrate the beginning of vacation time at the Grosse Ile Island Fest at the Grosse Ile Municipal Airport, June 1-3, 2018.
The main daytime attractions include tons of awesome exhibitors with everything from handcrafted goods to clothes, garden art and more – plus there will be food and rides for all ages. Kids and adults alike can have a blast together playing on the midway or watching the Saturday morning street parade.
A classic car show and traditional carnival rides and more also help you and yours kick off the start of the season – and the Saturday evening fireworks display definitely rings it in with a boom. Find lots of fun live entertainment this year, too, like 50 Amp Fuse the DR5 and Toppermost.
Admission to the event is free, but there is a $20-$25 fee for rides. Additional fees may apply for other activities. Islandfest carnival hours are as follows:
- Friday: 4 p.m.-midnight
- Saturday: noon.-midnight
- Sunday: noon-5 p.m.
