IMLAY CITY — Pie and ice cream is back at the Imlay City Museum! During the 2019 Michigan Busker Fest, historical society members will be dishing out their traditional pastry and ice cream combo but with a slight twist. Instead of the usual blueberry pie that rightfully coincided with the Blueberry Festival–the Busker Fest's precursor–they'll be slicing into pans of apple pie.
Historical society board member Carla Jepsen said their hours of operation during the festival will be from 4-8 p.m. on Friday, June 14 and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 15, or until they run out of pie.
"Our tent will be up with a cool place to sit and visit and enjoy a piece of pie and ice cream during the Busker Fest," Jepsen said.
Festivalgoers are also invited to check out the museum's displays during the two-day event.
Jepsen said their featured display from this spring, honoring the Imlay City Fire Department, is still up for viewing. They've also updated other displays and vignettes.
"The caboose and memorial building will also be open," she added.
The museum is located at 77 Main Street in the historic Grand Trunk Railroad depot at 77 Main Street in Imlay City. In addition to their special hours during the Busker Fest, the museum welcomes visitors on Saturdays from 1-4 p.m., April through December.
