BTM List: Things to Do in May 2023


MICHIGAN - It's finally May, and after some snow in late April, and even today in some places across Michigan, a warm up is on the horizon!

That means our thoughts turn to summer.

In fact, our show this weekend is all about summer fairs and festivals. We have some great guests. We hope you tune in on your favorite radio stations. (CLICK HERE to see our list of current affiliates.)

From mushroom festivals in Mesick and Boyne City to beer festivals and concerts, we have a little bit of everything on our BTM List of Things to Do.
