Morel Mushroom Festival
The 50th anniversary of Boyne City's National Morel Mushroom Festival was this weekend and it was a 'shroomin' good time! With a huge national reputation, we even met attendees who came from Pennsylvania and Alberta, Canada. Basking in the sunlight at the foot of Lake Charlevoix, we were grateful to be a part of it all. We ate these delicious fungi morning, noon and night. There were guest speakers, crafters, concerts, carnival rides, mushroom hunts and prizes awarded. If you did not want to go out into the woods and hunt your own morels, you could buy them for $30 a half pound. This festival always takes place the weekend after Mother's Day.
