Welcome, SPRING! It's FISHING SEASON! April marks the opening of trout season, and on opening day, Mancelona Village hosts the annual kids fishing day at Johnson's Pond. It was a slow start as far as fish biting, but the kids had a good time! Fishing is open year-round at the pond, for kids ages 14 and under.
In May, the elusive Morel is hunted by thousands of people! These delicious mushrooms complement soups, steaks, omelettes - or just as a side dish on their own. We're already seeing a few here and there. We need some sunshine to help them grow.
The annual Memorial Day parade is led by the American Legion in downtown Mancelona, starting at 9:00 a.m. This solemn event includes the High School marching band, local scouts, and a color guard. Services are held at the township library grounds and the cemeteries. Details are in the events calendar page.
