REED CITY — The Great American Crossroads Celebration has easily become Reed City’s signature summer season event.

Justifiably so.

This week, (starting Wednesday evening), there’s a lot in store for area residents, guests and visitors to the area.

For everyone wanting to get involved there’ll be a plenty to do, a lot to see, and even more to enjoy.

It’s time to start planning …if you haven’t done so yet. There’s going to be a busy weekend ahead for someone … anyone … looking for something to do.

The Crossroads Celebration runs from Wednesday, Aug. 10, through Sunday, Aug. 14.

Festival schedules are available at businesses all around Reed City or by contacting the GACC ‘command central’ at (231) 832-2245.

On the ticket is everything from the annual Ms. Reed City contest to live concerts; a softball tournament to bake sales; and much, much more.

Also planned are the Crossroads parade, Art in the Park, a 5K run, an art and crafts show, a car show, the ever-popular Pet and Bike Parade, music at locations all over town, a chicken barbecue, more concerts, more music, and more concerts still.

Whoooooooosh ….

There also will be concessions stands will be open at the park while the kids can enjoy a carnival and the day will wrap up with the Lucky Ducky Race.

This is a community celebration at its best with a real emphasis on good, ol’ fashioned family fun.
