Every year, when the ground turns frosty and the river carries chunks of broken ice southward, the Bald Eagle comes to Grafton to make its winter home. The Bald Eagle Festival is a celebration of this bird of prey and its journey from near extinction. The event offers patrons the opportunity to learn as well as meet this beautiful bird up close and personal. The festival will feature a live bald eagle meet and greet at 12:30 p.m. as well as the “Masters of the Sky Show” provided by the World Bird Sanctuary at 1:30 p.m. The show will focus on the bald eagle as well as other birds of prey. Festival goers can also enjoy unique vendor booths, live Native American style flute music, face painting, educational exhibits, restaurant specials and wine tasting. Entry into the festival is free. Tickets to the “Masters of the Sky Show” will be $3 per person and will be sold at the Pere Marquette Lodge Front Desk starting at 11 a.m. For more information about the Lodge and its events visit www.pmlodge.net  or call 618-786-2331.
