ANOTHER FINE FESTIVAL–All day Saturday the L’Anse Waterfront Park was filled with events, a carnival for the kids and a ton of vendors selling their wares. The 13th annual Lake Trout Festival was an undeniable success, even though the weather defied prediction and brought some rain showers and a cool breeze off the lake. The Keweenaw Bay Classic fish tourney was the biggest ever.

The streets and waterfront park in downtown L’Anse were buzzing Saturday, June 13, 2015 with a ten-year June tradition–the Baraga County Lake Trout Festival. Add to that a record field of 132 boats for the Keweenaw Bay Classic fish tournament, and it was quite an event.  “It was a great day–we had a lot of compliments,” said Tracey Barrett, tourism director and trout fest committee member. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
