Gopherwood Concerts – Willy Porter House Concert – January 24, 2016

Gopherwood is pleased to present one of our favorite performers, Willy Porter with singing partner Carmen Nickerson, in a special House Concert. Willy Porter is perhaps best known as a down tuned six string wonder, but as a singer and a writer, and as a showman, he merits equal regard…

North American Snow Festival – February 4 – 7, 2016

The Cadillac North American Snow Festival (NASF) takes place during the first weekend of February every year. In fact it has been held in the picturesque Cadillac area for over 3 decades.

There are plenty of outdoor events like the snowmobile races, a polar dip, and an ice-fishing contest bringing you outside to take full advantage of our frozen lakes.

The festival hosts an abundance of indoor events as well, like the chili-cookoff, craft beer tasting, and Miss Cadillac NASF pageant are there for those that need a relief from the chilly weather!

Desiree Farve was a light to our community. Spreading love, light and kindness. She is so..so dearly missed. Not just by our NASF folks, but our community and peers. She will forever be remembered in our hearts. We all miss her so very much. Thank you all for being so understanding❤️

Sad but understandable. Thank you Skyelar Hibbs for serving an extra year..... hopefully everyone will be just as understanding and supportive.

Maybe for one year, 2020, name the pageant after Desiree?

Understandable

On October 9-10, 2015, Cadillac will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the KISS Homecoming at Cadillac High School. The legendary rock band KISS visited the small town of Cadillac in 1975 to connect with their football team and perform a concert in the gym, a story that has become iconic in Rock and Roll history.

This year’s homecoming coincides with the 120th Anniversary of Cadillac Viking football, so special festivities are being planned. The weekend will include: The homecoming football game, KISS-themed additions to the homecoming parade, a re-creation of the concert in the gym (featuring the World’s Best KISS Tribute Band – Mr. Speed), the unveiling of a permanent KISS monument, walking tours of KISStorical markers at significant spots around town, promotions by local businesses, and much more.

Joy Vandrie, Director of the Cadillac Area Visitors Bureau, expects the weekend will have great appeal to KISS fans. “This event will garner world wide attention and not only attract many visitors to Cadillac for this unique weekend, but also establish Cadillac as a permanent KISS tourism destination.”

The KISS Cadillac Homecoming is a collaborative event with Cadillac Area Festival & Events, Cadillac Area Public Schools, the Cadillac Viking Athletic Boosters, and the Cadillac Band Boosters. All NET proceeds from the event will benefit the two booster clubs.

A committee of local citizens and many volunteers are working hard to make this event a success. Committee member Jim Neff, the person responsible for bringing KISS to Cadillac in 1975, adds: “We have the total backing of KISS and their management at McGhee Entertainment. The goal for everyone involved is to do something positive for the City of Cadillac and the students at Cadillac High School.”

A schedule of events, ticket information for the KISS tribute concert featuring Mr. Speed, sponsorship opportunities, and ways for KISS fans to donate to the monument fund will be announced soon.

Continuing information updates will be on the event website at www.kisscadillac.com, on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/kisscadillac, on Twitter at https://twitter.com/kisscadillac, in the Cadillac News in print and on www.cadillacnews.com, and on www.neffzone.com/kiss. Event details and information about visiting Cadillac will be on the Cadillac Area Visitors Bureau website at www.cadillacmichigan.com.

Is all the music so awesome? Bluegrass? Country?

The little girl, with the pink ear muffs, is my Granddaughter, Olivia. The shoulders, upon which she is perched are mine. We were experiencing a moment of bliss. A pretty common occurrence at Hoxeyville.

Does anyone know if Bryan Simpson is playing with anyone anymore?

Putting on the race every year is always a large undertaking. As soon as the race is over, we start working on next year; we have post race meetings to discuss how it went and what we can improve for next year. Than there is a period of relative quiet until January. After that it starts ramping up, planning, organizing, designing... as June and July pass, our intensity increases. Marketing, face book posts, radio interviews and commercials, TV interviews and commercials, soliciting sponsorship, organizing volunteers, designing and ordering race shirts, designing and ordering race swag, such as beer glasses and trophies. Obtaining city permits, getting insurance, road closures, police support, EMT support, music, timing company, and... did I say volunteers?
Than it all goes into overdrive the last two weeks leading up to race day... finalizing everything, getting the race trailer loaded with all materials, setting up the course, getting ready for registration and the actual race... the last two days are a blur! And than, on race day... once the gun goes off... it’s all done! Than it all just rolls! Hoping for no mishaps...
It went off very well again, with a couple hiccups... missing bad weather... now it’s clean up time!
It’s amazing how it all comes together!
But we could not do it without all of our sponsors and volunteers.
I would not be surprised if in the whole organization some 200 people are involved, one way or another!
Thank you for all that!
Let’s do it again next year!!!

Thank you to everyone who volunteers, etc., to make sure this race is fun and exciting. I have only done this race the last this year and last year, but I feel the energy and excitement before, during, and after the race. This is an awesome event that I can't wait to do again next year.

Thank you all for a great race. It was our first time running it and everyone was so friendly and encouraging. We appreciate you expanding the age groups for the young kids. Great way to start our young runners. Will be back Again. Thank you

Great Tri! Loved the challenge and the volunteers were great.

It's a wonderful event that I plan on doing as,long as this old girl is upright and mobile 😄🤗😃😎

Can’t wait to volunteer next year. Holler if you need help sooner, it’s always nice to support a good cause.

Great run, thank you for all the time and effort that goes into making it great!!

Great program u have put together Gus.

Volunteers are the best! I try my hardest to thank them all but sometimes I’m just too out of breath! So, if I missed anyone-THANK YOU!!
