MARQUETTE — The Third Annual Baraga Avenue Harvest Fest is all set for this Saturday.
The event takes place from three to eight p.m. on the 100 block of West Baraga Avenue between Front Street and Third Street. It will feature a number of fun activities for people of all ages.
“We have a carousel, which is complimentary,” said Promotions & Events Coordinator for the Marquette Downtown Development Authority Tara Laase–McKinney, “we have a petting zoo for the kids, a big truck petting zoo so kids can have fun climbing around on that and a ton of other kids activities. For some of the bigger kids and the adults we have a mechanical bull, we have live music going on throughout the festival and we also have a pasty eating contest.”
The Upper Peninsula Children’s Museum will be hosting the Paint Baraga Avenue Fest where individuals or groups can paint their own square of sidewalk. The weather looks to be much nicer on Saturday.
