ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - It’s a special day for the Native American community.

Since the UP State Fair is going on in Escanaba, the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians decided to give kids within their community a fun experience.

Those between the ages of two and 17 received free wristbands to attend the fair and explore booths to learn more about their culture.

"It's Native American Day here today, so obviously that's for our culture, and education so today we purchased the tickets for the wristbands for the kids on the rides but also to participate in Native American events that they have here,” said Sault Tribe Board Member, Darcy Morrow.

The UP State Fair is going on now until Sunday. Organizers encourage people to attend before it's too late.
