CRYSTAL FALLS, Mich. (WLUC) - The 28th annual Humongous Fungus Festival in Crystal Falls is this weekend. This festival celebrates the largest continuous mushroom in the world which spans nearly 38-acres between Crystal Falls and Alpha.
Beginning on Friday there will be a parade down Superior Avenue and live music at night.
To fit the 'Psychedelic 60s' theme there will be free tie dying. The events continue on Saturday with a flea market, mushroom cook-off and live music.
"We're just really excited. This is such an interesting and unique event and so this is something we hope that lots of people will come to. It's a great tourism event for Crystal Falls and so we want people to be shopping with our local businesses and enjoying the recreational opportunities Iron County has to offer,” said Iron County Chamber of Commerce Chamber Director Erika Sauter.
Mushroom-foraging experts will lead mushroom hunts on Saturday. Registration is required for the guided forages.
