15th annual Porcupine Mountain Music Festival wraps up

ONTONAGON, Mich. (WLUC) - The 15th annual Porcupine Mountain Music Festival came to an end Sunday after three days of fun, camping, and, of course, music.

At the festival, you could listen to a variety of music on three different stages or take chair lift rides that offered a spectacular view of the party below and of Lake Superior.

There was even a tent for the kids to do tie-dyeing, sand art, or get their face painted.

The festival brings in musical talents and people from all around the country, however, the weekend’s perfect weather may have been the biggest factor in this year’s record attendance.

“All of our lodging is full, all of the restaurants, the gas stations, the stores, everybody is busy. It really makes the area boom for the weekend,” said Cheryl Sundberg, Porcupine Mountain Music Festival Director.

It has yet to be determined how many people were in attendance for the festival, but organizers estimate around 2,000.

Possibly the best part of the music festival is all of the proceeds go back into the festival and into Porcupine Mountains State Park.
