Youngsters enjoy the miniature autos. A combined Hancock & Houghton High School Marching Band, a first time ever! The Portage Lake VFW Rangers Little League Team.
A Portage Health Care & Hospice delegation. Always ready for beach or boating, these gals.
Hello there! Riding a unicycle is tough enough, but this fellow keeps three bowling pins in the air at the same time.
New this year were helicopter rides all weekend, by Lake Superior Aviation, seen landing at the Hancock Ramada Inn. Also this year, again, the Classic Car Auto Show.
The Annual Volley Ball Tournament was held at the Hancock Recreation Courts, all three courts were kept busy throughout the weekend. And on Sunday, the 4th Annual M.T.U. 10-S (Tennis) Triathalon was held at the Hancock City Campground Boat Launch area. These gals have just finished the first swim leg of the event. Next was the biking portion, which was then followed by the running event. (Info and results are available via the link at the bottom). Join us in 2011 for Bridgefest.
