Presenting and Firework Sponsors

The Little River Casino Resort and Little River Band of Ottawa Indians are the Presenting and Firework Sponsors for the Manistee National Forest Festival. Without their generous support the organizers and volunteers would not be able to bring in the attractions, events and continue the signature events that have made this Manistee County's premier festival for 81 years.
