Grand Hotel – Grand Princess and Superhero Package – August 24 – 26, 2021

Grand Princess and Superhero Package
Join the magic of the Annual Grand Princess and Superhero Package at America’s Summer Place. Your princess or superhero will have a Grand time dressing up as their favorite princess or superhero for two days filled with fun activities and entertainment.

The enchantment begins with a Royal Welcome Reception on the Front Porch. After dinner, everyone will enjoy a sing-a-long and goodnight stories read by some of their favorite princesses. Rest up for the next day of Superhero Training, Afternoon Tea, and a “Not-So-Quite-Midnight Ball”. The festivities continue through Thursday morning, when all of our guest princesses and superheroes are recognized at Graduation.

This event is perfect for all ages but recommended for children 3 – 10. Children are encouraged to attend all the events, as there will be surprise character appearances at the events and around the hotel; however, please know activities and dressing up is optional. Parent supervision is required at all events, and refreshments are provided for parents at Afternoon Tea and the other events to make your time just as enjoyable.

You will not want to miss this opportunity to enjoy the magic of Grand Hotel among some of your child’s favorite princesses and superheroes!

Mackinac Island Fudge Festival – August 26 – 28, 2022

Calling all Fudgies!!!

For more than a century, Mackinac Island’s fudge has been an institution that’s become famous worldwide. Fudge devotees are known as “fudgies” – a term that is also synonymous with Northern Michigan tourists. Most people don’t need an excuse to indulge in a piece or two of creamy, decadent fudge.

But, for those who do, the Mackinac Island Fudge Festival which takes place each August, offers Island dwellers and tourists a terrific reason to celebrate fudge – made fresh each day at Mackinac’s multitude of fudge shops.
