Boyne City to kick off summer 2016 with Stroll the Streets

Music, fun and great times will fill the streets of downtown Boyne City this summer as Stroll the Streets returns for its 13th season on Friday, June 10th, from 6–9 p.m., continuing through Labor Day Weekend.

Stroll the Streets is a signature summer event for downtown Boyne City, with musical entertainment ranging from contemporary, country, bluegrass, traditional, folk, jazz, to rock.

Special activities include magicians, caricature artists, face-painting, balloon twisting and more fun activities for kids this year.

The program is funded with contributions from local businesses.

“The support from the business community is outstanding,” said Karen Guzniczak, chair of the Boyne City Main Street promotions committee. “With over 30 businesses sponsoring the summer series, we are able to provide wonderful entertainment throughout our downtown all summer long.”

In addition to musical entertainment, including Awesome Distraction, Daivd Lawston, Kowalske Family Band, Realeyez, Sky N Signal, and The Dodworth Duo, the evening will showcase the second phase of the historical walking tour which highlights residences, parks and churches.

Horse drawn carriage tours of our historic residential district, narrated by Patrick McCleary, will take place from 7–9 p.m. and the re-enactment of Teddy Roosevelt’s famous speech on the balcony of the Odd Fellows Hall is at 7 p.m.
