New festival will replace the now defunct Muskegon Summer Celebration
MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) Summer Celebration might be history but another is festival will take its place in the summer of 2013.
The announcement came this morning. The yet unnamed festival will take place in late June and early July.
Locally-based Muskegon Festival Group will run the event. It was chosen from four contenders. The festival's new name is expected to be released soon.
Nick Bessinger, Executive Director of the Muskegon Festival Group says, "We're looking at a four- to six-day event to include the Independence Day holiday," he said. "We will be booking national and international acts through an agent new to the Muskegon area, and hope to bring a fresh look to outdoor entertainment in the Muskegon market."
