Blueberry Festival Kicked Off Todayby Amy Wenger on August 29, 2014
For those looking to jazz up a traditionally leisurely Labor Day weekend, head on over to Plymouth and take advantage of a full slate of activities, food, and music during the annual Blueberry Festival, which kicked off today, August 29 and continues through Monday, September 1.
Among the vast selection of goodies featuring blueberries and the prevalent Americana theme of "Red, White and Blueberries," there is a tremendous variety of entertainment to entice guests of all ages and interests, such as local "oldies" band Spike and the Bulldogs, nationally renowned Christian contemporary gospel singer Cody Collier, and virtually every genre of music in between. There is also a diverse mix of exhibitors, contests, tournaments, carnival offerings, and animal shows.
Thousands will descend upon Plymouth during the four-day course of this yearly event, culminating in the Blueberry Stomp road race on Monday morning and followed by the parade, in which longtime community activist John Oliver will serve as the Grand Marshal. The parade route will commence at 9:30 a.m. and will wind along the historic Michigan Road corridor, as well as down Baker Street and Garro Street near downtown Plymouth.
