Marquette, MI – February 25, 2017 – We had a great time out at the Crossroads this afternoon for the 2017 Antique & Vintage Snowmobile Show! There’s been a lot going on the last few days for the event, including yesterday’s ride! We had Jerry and Nancy holding down the fort at today’s spectator show, and the two of them got to chat with a number of people from the show.

The Antique & Vintage Snowmobile Show started at 11 am. The turn out for participants was even better than last year, with over 30 classic snowmobiles on display. Check out the live audio below to listen to Jerry’s interview with club president Tim. He also caught up with Sherri, talking about the free registration and event rides taking place throughout the day.

It was a day full of fun for the entire family, with kids joining in for the Mini Sled Fun Run and Sawdust Pile Treasure Hunt. Some of the snowmobile owners joined in for the Loud Pipes Snowmobile Contest and of course, there was the Epic Mannequin Contest. Sled owners participated in this contest in hopes of winning 1st, 2nd or 3rd place for the most wild mannequin set up. There were also 50/50 raffles and of course the 1977 Panther Sled Raffle.

Marquette, MIJuly 4, 2016 — The street was packed with people who joined in the Fourth of July parade celebration. The groups were bright, friendly and some even showed off a lot of exciting sounds! This year, Sunny.fm, 103FXD and WRUP were well represented for Great Lakes Radio. Todd Noordyk, our leader here at Great Lakes Radio Inc., was heading up our vehicles with Adam Carpenter from the Outdoor Show. Adam was driving a stylish Kawasaki Mule from Zambon’s in Marquette with  Miss Pre-Teen Great Lakes State and Miss Pre-Teen Upper Midwest in a boat behind excitedly passing out candy with smiles and waves.

Eric Tasson was manning the 103 FXD truck with Lane Dawson as his co-pilot. Premium Pole Buildings and Storage Sheds was behind them hauling our newest giveaway prize, the Steamin’ Summer Sauna. Bill Tibor was next in the WRUP van with Mike and Walt from the Sunny Morning Show saving the day and completing our line-up in the Sunny.fm van with flashing lights.

There was a all-around great showing of floats and groups on this warm and wonderful Independence Day. The Marquette High School Class of 1971 float especially eye-catching with their VW Van structure and ’70s throwback decorations. Another parade favorite was the veteran and military groups who were well represented and respected throughout the parade.

It’s a wonderful sunny day for celebrating  The United States of America’s independence. Let us know how you celebrated your holiday or any of your favorite attractions from the parade!
