HOUGHTON LAKE, Mich. (AP) — Because of coronavirus restrictions, a popular northern Michigan festival is switching to a February weekend.
Tip-Up Town USA in Houghton Lake promotes itself as Michigan’s longest-running winter festival, with a polar bear dip, snowmobile drag racing, ice fishing contest and more in Roscommon County. It began in 1950, according to the local Chamber of Commerce.
The Jan. 16-17 dates have been switched to Feb. 27-28 because of restrictions on attendance at outdoor events, WWTV–WWUP-TV reported.
If there are conflicts with the new dates, Tip-Up Town probably will be canceled, organizers said.
