      35th year of music festival in Marquette

      The 35th annual Hiawatha Music Festival kicked off on Friday at Tourist Park in Marquette.

      Eleven local, regional, and national performers will take the stage, spanning a range of musical talent. Friday night's main attraction is a dance party that gets underway at 8 p.m.

      Organizers say this is a great event for the whole family.

      "There is a lot for you to enjoy, not just the music, but there is a concession area if you want to hang out and have dinner with the family, and there is a wonderful artist section, but mostly it's a place where people have bonded and made traditions," said Hiawatha organizer, Bobby Glenn Brown.

      Tickets for the Friday night's dance are $25, $5 for children. Tickets are $80 for the whole weekend.
