General Guide to Summer Outdoor Fun

 

The General Guide showcases cultural places and events along the I-94 corridor between Battle Creek and Jackson, including Albion, Marshall, and Homer.

The primary focus of the Guide is to build bridges between Albion and Marshall by sharing information that welcomes people into each community.

Since gasoline prices are a bit higher this year than they were a year ago, many families are opting out of larger vacations and going on day-trips along the I-94 corridor for fun and entertainment. The General Guide can help to figure out what places to go to on what day. The Guide is designed to be posted on a refrigerator showing the three months calendars and art of “Summer in the City” as the banner design.

Summer in the Cities banner for General Guide XXXII shows events in July, August, and September in Calhoun County Michigan. These include the Field of Flight and Balloon show in Battle Creek, the Battle Creek Bombers, Albion Recreation Department, Marshall Blues Fest, Kanoe the Kazoo, Calhoun County Fair in Marshall, Yard Sales, Cruise-ins, Swingin at the Shell, Back to School including Albion College with the Equestrian Center, Briton Eight, 5K runs, and Marshall Public Schools.

One of the most exciting recurring events this summer is the 15th anniversary season of “Swingin’ at the Shell,” the free concert series at the Victory Park bandshell on Sundays at 6 p.m. This ongoing event goes from mid-July through mid-September and features top local music bands that play original and cover songs.

Many people in Michigan know about the Mackinac Labor Day Bridge Walk, but the Albion Labor Day River Trail Walk over the Bridge is also gaining in popularity. This event starts in Victory Park at 10 a.m. on Labor Day and will be promoted more as the big day draws near. The walk is open for people with all levels of mobility.
