There are several things to do in the month of July, including the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City.  The festival attracts nearly half a million people each year.  This year, it's set for July 2 through 9 and will bring together parades, live music, winery tours and so much more.

Another July event includes the Blissfest Music Festival. Blissfest returns July 8 through 10 to the Festival Farm in Harbor Springs.  Plenty of American roots music, dance and art at the Blissfest Music Festival.

July also offers a great time during the Old Town Scrapfest.  The event, which falls on July 15 and 16, brings together art, creativity and resource reuse.  Teams of artists have one hour to collect up to 500 pounds of scrap and are given two weeks to create a work of art.  For a complete list of things to do in July, click here on the Lansing State Journal.
