Northern Michigan Events: Head to Harbor Springs this weekend! Toe-tappin’ music, refreshing libation, and scrumptious cuisine grace the shoreline of this picturesque freshwater destination.
Stroll the streets and peruse the shops of quaint downtown Harbor Springs every Thursday evening. Why, you ask? Because every Thursday this summer, live music will breeze through the streets from many local musicians and bands. Tunes start up around 7:30 and last ‘til 9:30 p.m. There’s plenty of stuff for kids to do too, including face painting, magic shows, balloon animals and sidewalk chalk.
