Petoskey’s Festival on the Bay 2015

It’s that time of year!!  Festival on the Bay is back this weekend – August 14-15 in Petoskey

Harbor/Brenn tries to field a volunteer team each year to help out at the entertainment tent on Friday night.  We will be back at the tent again from 6-8pm Friday 8/14, and would love to see you there!  If you’re interested in volunteering, or putting together a team of volunteers from your business, contact Rebeca Otto @  It’s always a fun time, great employee bonding & fills a need during a pretty big community event!


YMCA #4.9770k Color Fun Run

New this year, we are also sponsoring and volunteering at the first ever #4.9770k Color Fun Run for the YMCA of Northern Michigan.  It’s not too late to register – Color Run Registration.  We are so excited to see how this turns out.  The run will start near Lime Kiln pond at the end of the waterfront, run down and turn around at Magnus Park.  There will be 6 different color stations, a color splash finale, giveaways, award prizes – So. Much. Fun!







David Zinn chalking

Another great event – the Chalk & Chocolate Festival.  This festival benefiting the Crooked Tree Arts Council also takes place at the end of the waterfront.  Stop by to view AMAZING chalk sidewalk art, and for a $5 fee per individual, you will be able to sample delicious chocolates from around the world.  Kilwin’s Chocolates and other chocolatiers will be providing a chocolate tasting during the event!
