The sun is shining. The birds are singing. We made it to spring, folks! We sure have been cooped up in our respective dwellings for far too long, and there's no better way to get out and enjoy this weather than by celebrating some of the many foods that make Michigan a truly delicious place to live. From blueberries to ribs to the birth of cereal, Southwest Michigan has it's share of great food festivals you don't want to miss out on.
