      Hundreds turn out for Nahma Celebration

      Hundreds of people were in Nahma for their annual Labor Day Celebration.

      People were lined up on the side of the roads watching as the Parade comes cruising through the Village of Nahma.

      "I liked going in the parade and doing flips. And, I like this festival," said Shaun Beauchamp.

      Every year Nahma gets packed with people from across the U.P. coming back to enjoy their Annual Labor Day Celebration.

      "Well I think it's super and that's the reason you get such a good crowd here. They have done a good job. There's a lot of history and tradition. That's why they draw big numbers for a small community," said Glenn Marenger.

      After the parade the festivities continue at the Nahma Park.

      Activities are all Old Fashioned like the Cake Walk, and sawing contest as a way to honor the history of Labor Day.

      Labor Day is a time to remember who the country was built by, and the American Labor Movement.

      "Local unions have always played an important role in having that checks and balances in protecting workers rights. Making sure that workers have fair wages, make sure they have safe working conditions," said Grant Carlson, Democratic Candidate for the 108th district State Representative.

      It's an all day bash where people could enjoy a local band, eat food, and shop with vendors.

      All the funds raised will go back to maintaining the park and future projects.
