Skating races, ski meets, and carnivals highlight the winter sport season at Cheboygan, Petoskey, Boyne Falls, Grayling, and other sports centers. In January hundreds of people set up shanties on Houghton Lake during an annual ice-fishing festival. Annual sled-dog championship racers compete in the Upper Peninsula in February, while a cross-country ski race begins at Marquette in March. Spring is introduced at the Blossomtime Festival, the largest multicommunity festival in Michigan, centered in Saint Joseph and Benton Harbor at the heart of the fruit-growing region. The annual Maple Syrup Festival takes place in the appropriately named Vermontville in April, where syrup producers stage demonstrations and sell maple goods. Prized agricultural products are at the core of the Tulip Time Festival in May in Holland and July’s National Cherry Festival in Traverse City. The International Freedom Festival, recognizing Canada Day and Independence Day, is held jointly in late June and early July in Detroit and neighboring Windsor, Ontario.

In August the ten-day Michigan Festival in East Lansing features some of the country’s top performers and acts as an umbrella for three accompanying festivals. The Labor Day jazz festival and gospel festival are major musical events in Detroit. The International Festival of Lights brightens December in Battle Creek, while ice artists from around the world create 200 sculptures in an annual ice-carving exhibition in January in Plymouth. Michigan’s major professional sports teams include the Detroit Tigers (baseball), the Detroit Pistons (basketball), the Detroit Lions (football), and the Detroit Red Wings (ice hockey). The University of Michigan and Michigan State University are known for excellent sports teams, especially in football and basketball. "Michigan" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
