Cheeseburger in Caseville will take place Aug 8th – 17th 2014
‘Cheeseburger’ is one of the most looked-forward-to events of the year.
The festival is a tribute to tropical paradise, cheeseburgers, and Jimmy Buffett. The 10-day long festival takes place in the August, celebrating the final weeks of summer vacation. Activities at the festival range from sandcastle making to concerts and laser light shows on the beach.
Cheeseburger in Caseville was started in 1999, when a Caseville local came up with an idea for an end-of-summer festival. About 5,000 people from around Huron County, Michigan attended the first three-day festival. Today the festival has grown to 10 days and includes concerts, food, and the highlight of the festival, The Parade of Tropical Fools. The parade is held on the first Wednesday night of the festival and is the biggest attraction that the festival has to offer. The parade can last up to two hours and attracts more than 80,000 people every year.
The Cheeseburger in Caseville festival has activities for all ages. There are a variety of concerts and many kids activities. An assortment of different cheeseburger stands from restaurants throughout the city compete for the prize of best burger. In addition, there is a classic car show, fireworks display, a sand castle & sculpture contest, and a lot of other fun activities.
