      29th Annual Food Fest underway

      The 29th Annual International Food Fest in Marquette is underway at Mattson Lower Harbor Park.

      Tents, booths and vendors have set up in the park offering a taste of the restaurants in the area. The event is hosted by the Marquette County Exchange Club.

      In addition to the food, the festival will feature live music, bounce houses and games for kids.

      "I saw this advertised on TV and I said, we have to come up here, so we decided to come up today and my wife is shopping here and we're going to try to eat as much as we can eat before we go home, and we want to listen to music," says Food Fest fan Jim LaHaie. "There's so much going on in Marquette, every single weekend there's something different."

      The International Food Fest started Thursday at noon and continues through July 5.

      Money raised at the Food Fest is given back to local charities by the Marquette County Exchange Club.
