Northern Michigan Events: Traverse Magazine's Four Lucky Summer Winners

Four contests and four winners: Traverse, Northern Michigan’s, Magazine is pleased to announce that the entry slips have been counted, the names have been drawn and the winners chosen for our four summer Northern Michigan giveaways!

As part of our 2011 summer celebration Traverse Magazine wanted to offer our online e-newsletter subscribers various opportunities to heat up their Red Hot Summer. From free-hotel stays to complimentary V.I.P. festival passes Traverse Magazine hooked up our readers with fun things to do Up North. Just our way of saying thanks!

4 Harbor Days V.I.P. Passes: Keith P. of East LansingKeith P. Winner Harbor Days VIP

Traverse Magazine: “Why do you love Harbor Days?”
Keith: “We love Harbor Days because it’s a way to breathe some life back into summer.  After all the rain in May/June and the heat of July, Harbor Days is special because it captures all that summer was meant to be – sunny days having fun with friends and family and cool nights around town, with fireworks to top it all off.  The rides, games, competitions, community meals/music, etc. all make Harbor Days the place to be in Northern Michigan that first week of August.  And the memories last a lifetime.”

As the winner Keith received V.I.P. seating for the Elk Rapids Harbor Days fireworks and the parade!

Grand Beach/Sugar Beach Contest: Maria K. of Traverse City

She won a stay at Grand Beach or Sugar Beach Resort Hotels with her family for four days. Between the numerous fabulous festivals, countless exciting events and array of outdoor activities Northern Michigan summers don’t slow down! Maria is excited to use her prize as a way to relax and enjoy Northern Michigan’s serenity, tourist style.

Paella in the Park Ticket Giveaway: Trisha D. of Marion

Traverse Magazine | “Why do you need to be at Paella in the Park?”
Trisha: “I would love to win tickets to Paella in the Park because I have actually never tried Paella!  I hear that I am really missing out and this would be a great chance to tickle my taste buds with a new treat and some delicious Northern Michigan wine.  Plus, this year is my 5-year wedding anniversary to my wonderful husband and this sounds like a great excuse for us to get out of the house and leave our son with a sitter!”

Traverse Magazine | is delighted to give this out-of-townie a chance to enjoy a lovely, Northern Michigan Friday at Paella in the Park in Traverse City!
