Blackberry Farm Show this weekend

The 33rd annual Blackberry Farm and Antique show will be this weekend August 12 & 13 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm both days.  This year’s theme is tillage demonstrations featuring fieldwork done with horses and antique tractors.  Also included is a flea market.  Lots of food will be available on site.  Our summer intern will be out and about videotaping some of the many displays and demonstrations happening.  If you get the chance to be out and about this weekend the show grounds are located 7 miles east of Grand Rapids on Highway 2 in Blackberry.

Pike for Vets

Recently Just Outdoors host Tom Chapin went to a rustic pike fishing competition with Roy LaDoux and Joe Maurer from Pike for Vets at Denny's Resort on serene Lake Winnibigoshish to see how the fish were biting.

This weekend the annual Tall Timber Days festivities will take place in downtown Grand Rapids.  Our ICTV staff and summer intern will be videotaping the Tall Timber Days Parade on Sunday at 1:00 pm.  Creative floats, great music and so much to see for kids and adults will be featured.  The parade route starts at the Fairgrounds to NE 3rd Avenue to NE 5th street and turning to go down NW 2nd Avenue.  Once again ICTV volunteers Mary Jo Jess and Gene Baker will be our hosts for the parade.
