Variety keeps Shanty Days fresh

You are not looking hard enough if you cannot find something to do at this weekend’s Shanty Days in Algoma. A fishing contest officially got the event underway on Wednesday with a 5K run/walk and tournaments for cornhole and volleyball also scheduled for the weekend. The non-competitive types will not be out left out thanks to the Saturday parade and car show, fireworks, and the weekend-long arts and crafts fair. Algoma Chamber of Commerce President Ken Weinaug believes it is the variety of activities in addition to the live music and food that helps keep Shanty Days popular.

The festival grounds will open to the public at 3 p.m. on Friday with Shanty Days running through Sunday. You can click this link to see the full schedule, wristband information, and event registration.
