Ypsi Heritage Festival filming this weekend, baby!

You better believe that I will be attending this best of Ypsi local event!
August 21-23!!!

An excerpt about the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival, from their site:

The 2009 Ypsilanti Heritage Festival is dedicated to the Ypsilanti Historical Society and Ypsilanti Historical Museum with deep gratitude for preserving and showcasing the rich history of the Ypsilanti community.

The Ypsilanti Heritage Festival draws families from southeastern Michigan and the greater Detroit Metropolitan area to experience the fun and excitement of this ADMISSION FREE, family friendly, three day event.

Featuring historic tours and Living History Encampment, arts and crafts, stage entertainment, Children’s Village and the always popular Rubber Duck Race, the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival truly has something for everyone. Parades, contests and delicious food are just some of the surprises that await you and your family.

There is so much to see and do, you’ll have to spend a couple of days to do it all!



My crew and I have our itinerary planned, cameras charged and ready to film. Below you will find our schedule- feel free to find us over the weekend if you would like to be on local television.

Just look for a kick ass video camera and a chick with a microphone sporting a retro pink wig!

Otherwise I suggest you visit Ypsilanti's official Heritage Festival site, download the map, and enjoy the weekends festivities! This is going to be a blast. I'm especially looking forward to the annual rubber ducky race, and 1st annual bed race!

See you there.
