MUSKEGON, MI – A day celebrating Irish music, culture and food is coming to Muskegon this fall.
Hackley Hooley, an event of the Michigan Irish Music Festival, will feature live music from four groups from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on September 18 at Hackley Park, 350 W. Webster Ave.
The event takes place in place of the four-day festival which was canceled earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Michigan Irish Music Festival President Chris Zahrt said in a statement attendees can look forward to a “full day of Irish fun”.
