The Glen Arbor Sun reminds us all of something we failed to post – the annual Sleeping Bear Dune Climb Concert! The FREE concert takes place Sunday, July 11 at 7 p.m. at the base of the Dune Climb in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. This year’s concert will be exceptional with a performance by Michigan’s own Jeremy Kittel and his band. This is pretty much the finest venue in northern Michigan and you should definitely round up family, friends and random strangers and GO!
