July the 4th be with you!

It is that time of the year!  Celebrating Independence Day!  And one of the Ironwood Chamber members, the Bessemer 4th of July, Inc., really knows how to put on a week-long celebration of summer, community, and patriotic reflection.  Starting June 26th and running to July 4th, this “Bessemer Blast” offers 9 days of live music, creative events, and family fun.  Check out their website https://bessemer4th.com/ and also their Facebook page to get the hour-by-hour schedule as well as daily updates on events:  https://www.facebook.com/Bessemer4th

Everything from a pickleball and cornhole tournaments to polka and street dance, all topped off with the Thunder on the Mountain Fireworks Display at 10 pm on July 4th.

As the old office guy writes this, we are at June 20, the tipping point where the joy of summer is tempered a bit with the realization that (as the saying goes) “winter is coming.”  While U.P. here, that’s ok for most folks, still, the months of July, August, and September are FILLED with community and organizational events!  It is warm, the SUN is out, the waterfalls are roaring, and one can shed the down jacket for t-shirts and caps.  For a day-to-day list of area events, don’t forget to go to our community all-event calendar!  https://felivelife.org/
