Description

Held each year in the final two weeks of January in the depths of Michigan's winter, Tip Up Town has grown to become the largest and most popular winter festival in the state. All the usual winter sports are represented, as well as some less usual ones too! An ice fishing contest, polar bear dip, snowmobile display-rides-racing, coed softball on ice, ice slide, motorcycle ice racing, ice carving, ice sculpture contests and chainsaw carving are just a few of the weird, wacky and icy events happening at the Tip Up Town festival this year. And if all that isn't enough for you, there will also be carnival rides and games, a beverage tent with winter warmers to keep your toes from freezing off, a winter fashion show, the mysterious sounding 'turkey & chicken bowling', a bed race, garage sale, scavenger hunt, and of course, it wouldn't be an American festival without the crowning of the Tip Up Town Queen! So for a truly All-American event this winter, get yourself along to Tip Up Town in Michigan!
