Fun in the sun at Trout Fest; Big crowd fills park

His work is done!–Hands filled with items to take home, CJ Sullivan student Prestan Stevens runs to the bus on the last day of school, a half-day on Friday, June 7, 2019. Prestan proudly noted that he’s completed second grade. Baraga students are in their first year with a later summer dismissal because they adjusted the schedule to have a few more days off during the school year. Baraga ends with a half day on Friday, June 14.

The weather was beautiful this weekend as approximately 40 vendors rented booth space at the 14th annual Baraga County Lake Trout Festival. The event started in the early morning hours with fisherman up and out early for the Keweenaw Classic Fishing Tournament Saturday, June 8, 2019. The L’Anse Waterfront Park was packed with kids and adults of all ages in the afternoon, enjoying food, looking at crafts for sale, and playing at the kid’s carnival with a bounce house and obstacle course.
