Five Days in a Two-Lake Town
July 30, 2022
Onekama is known—in Michigan, at least—as the “Two-Lake Town,” nestled between Portage Lake and Lake Michigan. This weekend, the Manistee County gem is celebrating all things summer with their 49th annual Onekama Days, starting Thursday, Aug. 4, and running through Monday, Aug. 8. The family-friendly extravaganza is intended as a last hurrah before the back-to-school madness—and the accompanying sports practices and music lessons and other extracurriculars—gets underway. Rib dinners, karaoke nights, a 5K run/walk, a vintage car show, a cornhole tournament, live music, and a parade are just a few of the weekend’s scheduled events. (And if you didn’t get your fix over the Fourth, there will also be a fireworks show over Portage Lake on Saturday.) Many of the events are free, so hop on M-22 and enjoy the drive along the Mitten State’s most beautiful highway. Win, win.
