Great Labor Day Weekend in Harbor Beach!
Hot, Sweet...au Naturelle and everything in between....It's the 7th annual Salsa Tasting Contest in downtown Harbor Beach on Saturday, August 30 from noon to 3 pm at participating merchants. Skip lunch and join your friends and family in Harbor Beach for this popular event. It's the best $2 lunch around and even better than that, is if you wear your "HARBOR BEACH BUTTON", it's only a buck! Pick up your ballot and map at the Harbor Beach Visitor's Center and make your way around town and vote for your favorite. There promises to be at least a couple to tempt your taste buds and make the voting a little difficult. Be sure to ask for recipes so your 2014 Harbor Beach Salsa Tasting will be more than a memory. Return your ballot to the Visitor Center by 3:30 pm and be entered to win "THE FABULOUS SALSA BASKET'. We hope to see you in downtown Harbor Beach on Saturday, August 30 for the 7th Annual Salsa Tasting contest.
Also, August 30th will be the final scheduled Lighthouse Tour for this season. Tours begin at 10 am with the last boat leaving the Harbor Beach Municipal Marina at 12:15 pm.
After tasting, shopping and touring, join in the fun at North Park Campground from 7 - 10 pm for an evening of "DJ in the Park". Enjoy the campground, state of the art playground and music sponsored by HB Parks and Recreation.
It's where you want to be for Labor Day weekend....Downtown Harbor Beach.
We hope to have you join the fun!
