You're Welcome in Bellaire

Water is the backdrop of life in Bellaire, the county seat. Swimming, boating, fishing and beach-combing are summer activities that give way in the fall to driving tours along some of Michigan’s most scenic back roads. In the winter, snowmobile trails, sledding spots and Shanty Creek’s ski slopes provide plenty of fun. Golf swings into action in the spring as the area heats up again. The Village’s 1,200 residents know how to throw a party. Each August the town has a fabulous Annual Rubber Ducky Festival downtown with food, arts, crafts, a parade and a Rubber Ducky Race. Other annual activities include September’s Harvest Festival & Scarecrow Extravaganza, a Holiday Gift Fair, Light Up The Night, 5k Run/Walk, Parade, Soup Cook-Off and much more. Check our site often to view upcoming events.

Get to know Bellaire by visiting our unique gift, clothing and art shops as well as great places to eat and drink, plus a traditional movie theater make Bellaire a day-into-evening destination. Bellaire has numerous accommodations including Award winning Bed & Breakfasts, Motels, Inns, Resorts, cabins as well as parks and campgrounds.

We look forward to your visit to Bellaire!

Tipsey Tuesday's to Keep busy...Are you all having a tough time with not having a schedule?  We are too...I've decided that's ok, what is helping me get thru this is keeping my hands busy!  I made this banner from vintage dictionary pages, a bunny stamp, twine & hot glue gun!  This could be made with a map, cute wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper....other stamps could be used, birds, butterflies....So what are you doing to keep busy?  Stay safe & healthy everyone♡♡♡ Happy Tuesday!!!

Happy Anniversary baby!!!
We were married on St Croix by a Captain as we stood with our feet in the water. We are both water lovers and this was the BEST day! This photo was taken a few days before. Steve’s holding a bag of our snorkeling gear.
March 31st is a National Holiday in the Caribbean when in 1917 Denmark sold The Danish West Indies to the United States now know as The U.S. Virgin Islands for 25million in gold.
Also the day Steve says he transferred his life to Dawn 💜 (Its a big responsibility 😍)

@adweek giving our own @manitoubrew some well deserved recognition for his mad design skills. He, alongside every single Mammoth employee, has been working overtime to make the pivot from distilling spirits to producing hand sanitizer and getting it out to as many people as possible.
