Northern Michigan Events: In today's world of fast paced, on-the-go living, it's hard to remember the days of neighborhood potlucks, lawn parties and ice cream socials. But this Memorial Day Weekend, the Homestead Resort of Glen Arbor, MI, near Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, is resurrecting some of that laid back charm with it's second annual Block Party.

The event will be held this Saturday, May 26, 2012 from 12 until 3 p.m., at the Village of the Resort. Afternoon activities include classic games for both kids and adults such as a three legged race, face painting, t-shirt tie dying, chair lift rides, wine and beer tasting, plenty of food and a silent auction in the Mountain Flowers Lodge (make sure to look out for the My North Media Donation!). The best part about the Block Party is that you're doing good while having fun! The Homestead has pledged that all revenue will be donated to the VFW Foundation for Unmet Needs. Get your Northern Michigan summer off to a relaxed, fun-filled start at this neighborhood style Block Party!

The Block Party is being held on May 26, 2012 at the Village of the Resort from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m.
