Have you ever been to Frankenmuth, MI? Chances are that when you visited this Bavarian themed city there was a parade or festival of some sort, right? It sure seems that way every time we go, and truthfully, I absolutely love that.
Frankenmuth is a small tourist town off the beaten path in Michigan that certainly knows what it is doing. It is not necessarily something you would just “happen” across, yet every time I step foot onto their streets I find them to be packed with people from all over the world. I believe that this happens because what little Bavaria is offering is much more than just a place to visit. Frankenmuth, MI is offering visitors a sense of community, family enrichment, great food and spectacular sights and sounds. Along with all of these every day enticements, they also put on one (or in this case, many) fabulous festivals throughout the year.
