Happy 176th Birthday Michigan!

Today is Michigan’s 176th birthday. January 26, 1837 Michigan was admitted as the 26th state of the union. And Michiganders all over the state will be celebrating!

WFGR’s media partner WZZM TV 13 has a story about the “Awesome Mitten” and the way they are celebrating the birthday! The lovely and talented Hannah Sanders has the story.

The Awesome Mitten is hosting a bake-off competition. Bakeries around the state have entered pictures of their best, Michigan-themed desserts. Some common themes this year, lots of Michigan fruit, and of course, the state’s famous shape. People are also invited to come out to celebrate in person on Saturday, when the winner will be announced. Since this is a state-wide competition, several meeting sites have been set up in the major cities. The one in Grand Rapids will be at the Mitten Brewing Company.
