Weekend Recap: Frankenmuth Bavarian Festival 2017

If the warmer weather and the multitude of festivals coming up wasn’t a clue, Summer is here! This past weekend, we celebrated the 59th Annual Frankenmuth Bavarian Festival, Michigan’s oldest German festival. This year, the festival made the move from Heritage Park to Zehnder Park, added two additional tents on Main Street, more activities throughout town, and even fireworks! It was a German festival fit for a Bavarian Princess.

If you missed all the fun, we’ve got you covered. See what you missed during the weekend and the festival below in our Weekend Recap.

Nothin' like a good ol' polka in the morning to get the blood flowin'
