Downtown Ishpeming was packed with vendors for the city’s annual Festival of Treasures celebration Wednesday afternoon.
Food, crafts, and children’s activities lined Main Street, and gave people a chance to browse at antiques and other vendors. A live band provided entertainment for the shoppers.
“It’s fun, everyone brings their family down, we have music here,” Jim Mager, owner of Jimmy’s Krack Korn said. “There’s a lot going on down here. It’s just a fun, family atmosphere.”
Festival of Treasures has been a part of Ishpeming for many years. People keep coming back year after year because it is such a community–oriented festival.
“Ishpeming’s really hometown, and always been and always will be,” Mager said. “And it’s little communities like this that bring everybody together. It’s great, I’m glad to be a part of it.”
Festival of Treasures is the start of Ishpeming’s Fourth of July Celebration. After the festival, shoppers can enjoy a concert starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Old Ish Park.
