Organizers of the National Cherry Festival, which brings in over a half-million people each July, are teaming with the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa to launch a new celebration called the Cherry Capital Winter Wonderfest – a three-day winter celebration with music, pageantry, food, wine and winter sports that takes place March 2-4. Mt. Holiday, located right in town, and nearby Shanty Creek will be offering lots of skiing and riding activities. For information on the new festival you can link onto www.visittraversecity.com.
