2015 Heikki Lunta Festival Cancelled
The Negaunee Irontown Association announces that the 2015 Heikki Lunta Festival will be cancelled. The event featured an ice fishing tournament, fireworks, and a community bonfire. The 2015 celebration, originally slated for January 17th, would have marked the festival’s 20th anniversary.
The Negaunee Irontown Association Board made a decision based on a lack of funding to purchase fireworks due to the rising costs associated with putting on this type of event. The local businesses who generously agreed to sponsor the event will be contacted in the coming weeks by Irontown staff. Starting in 2015 the Irontown Board will be focusing their efforts towards Pioneer Days, the scholarship fund and the annual Tree Lighting. The Irontown board is urging everyone’s support for these community events whether it is in the form of donations, sponsorships, supporter cards or volunteers to put on these quality events in the future.
