Although the weather didn’t cooperate, Copper Country residents still showed up to the festivities going on this past weekend. It all got started with the Bridgefest parade on Friday, which moved through Hancock and into Houghton. Saturday was a little wet but that didn’t deter people from enjoying the music and food at Kestner Park. Many local establishments came together for the first time in the event’s history to provide a wide selection of delicious entrees. Julie Courtright, owner of Habaneros, told me about her first reaction to the idea.
So is this format going to stick around?
A great fireworks display also took place as a part of the festivities.
