      U.P. State Fair announces musical acts

      The Upper Peninsula State Fair announced on Thursday the musician lineup for the upcoming summer event.

      There will be performances by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jackyl, Great White and Craig Morgan. The Upper Peninsula State Fair is Michigan's only state fair, and there will be fun and activities for all ages.

      "Active military, retired military and veterans receive discounted admission on Friday's Military Appreciation Day," said Vickie Micheau of the Delta Chamber of Commerce. "After a full day of fun, positive activity, we'll end in the grandstand with the iconic Nitty Gritty Dirt Band."

      At this year's fair there will be a giveaway contest, giving someone a chance to win a $12,000 hot tub.

      The fair runs from August 12 to August 18. For more details on the events, please visit the U.P. State Fair's website.
