MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - It was day two of the 41st annual Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival. People from all over the United States came together at Tourist Park for music, vendors, and fun.

Each year, the main-stage lineup includes bluegrass, old-time, Cajun, Celtic, and acoustic blues genres, as well as nationally, regionally, and locally, known performers.

A few sprinkles didn't stop the festivities. According to traffic monitors, roughly 3,000 to 4,000 people in attendance- relatively the same amount as last year.

"I think the weather is kind of striking people but you know at the same time we are all relieved that it's not 100 degrees. Its relative pleasant,” said Kirk Veseal, Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival Volunteer Traffic Monitor, “Get everyone’s rear ends out here and have good time.”

If you missed out on Saturday’s fun, don’t worry. The festival continues Sunday.
