Colon: The Magic Capital of the World
Did you know that Michigan has a town known as the Magic Capital of the World? That would be Colon, south of Battle Creek. Their 77th Magic Festival was last weekend, where for four days, they bring in celebrated sleight-of-hand acts from around the world. Famed magician Harry Blackstone lived here and was buried in Colon's cemetery which started a rash of other magician burials here! The whole town is devoted to magic. Be prepared for bleacher seats in the Colon High School auditorium where all the programming takes place. Your kids will love it.
