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❤️

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

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

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.

This post is getting an enormous amount of eyeballs and responses, which is heart warming, but why do the 3770 people that saw this not sign up and participate? It’s not like we don’t want to do the race...

Absolutely loved this event! So sad to see it cancelled. I’ll miss the cool shirts too... it was great while it lasted and THANK YOU to all that made it happen over the years!! 🏃🇺🇸👣👣👣👣👣

Lena Marie Tammy Wenn 😞 😞 😞

A loss for our community. Longest running 10k in Michigan I believe. And one of, if not THE, first adventure type multi-sport events in Michigan. The venue, awards, race environment and support over the years have been some of the best I’ve personally experienced compared to numerous races I’ve participated in throughout the state. Thank you for the years of effort trying to maintain and grow this event in our community.

I would love to do it but since back surgery I don’t run anymore....I’m sorry to see it go

My favorite race last year and my first overall win which I'll never forget. I really liked this race and sad to see it being cancelled but understand

I’m so sad! I have run this race, since 2012, the year after I met my husband.

Emily Woodcock

I ran in this race the last two years, and won silver in my age group last year. I had a blast and will miss this event, but I also understand the reason for cancelling it. Thank you Gus, as well as all the volunteers, for putting on such a fun and exciting race. Hopefully, this event can make a comeback at some point.

This is exactly what happened to the “Ride for A Cause” for our local Oasis ...it use to bring in thousands for Oasis and after a decade dwindled to nothing ... unfortunate. In Wexford county when I looked at the non-profits we were trying to support back than it was 140!! A very generous community however it’s just a rotating movement of the same money - people can’t donate or participate in everything ..

I'm sad and disappointed, but understand the enormous amount of resources it takes for an event like this. I had planned to participate in the adventure tri, shame on me for not registering early to show support for this event. Thanks for the years of races!

Karen Shuboy Sullivan, gee I wonder why I quit this race 4 or 5 years ago....

We think there are simply too many competing events in the region and interest has changed from races in our format to “color runs” mud runs and obstacle course racing. We’ve seen a very sharp decline in registrations and sponsorship, to the point we had to decide to either loose a lot of money or pull the plug. We are a non profit that has donated to worthy causes in our community over the years. It is really unfortunate to see it end after a very very long continuous “run”

That is sad. I have run this race once. I live in Owosso and we have a festival of races during our Curwood Festival. Less than 35 people finished the half this year. They may as well put a fork in that one as well. Each year the numbers go down.

This post is getting an enormous amount of eyeballs and responses, which is heart warming, but why do the 1400 people that saw this not sign up and participate? It’s not like we don’t want to do the race...

You can’t even just put on a 5k or the 10k? This is the longest running 10k. That would be terrible to just end that like that

I was planning on signing up in the next few weeks. Great race! 😢

So sad

That's too bad😞 look forward to it every year

Really? I'm surprised that it has declined so much.
