This is great news out of the Lakeshore! WZZM reports the replacement for Summer Celebration is in the works, with a new promoter and "a fresh look to outdoor entertainment in Muskegon" That's great news after last years' cancellation of the popular outdoor festival and concert series that ran for almost two decades.

WZZM's story, "New summer festival coming to Muskegon"
goes on to say "We're looking at a four- to six-day event to include the Independence Day holiday. We will be booking national and international acts through an agent new to the Muskegon area" That's according to Nick Bessinger, Executive Director of the Muskegon Festival Group.

None of that can be bad news. The cancelling of the event last year left a bad taste in many people's mouths about the whole event, which has been criticized in the past for mismanagement and poor act selection. This is a good start to the future of summer festivals in Muskegon!
