NativeFest at Ziibiwing Cultural Center July 24-25, 2018
The Ziibiwing Center of Anishinabe Culture & Lifeways presents a celebration of North American Indian Culture with Indian Car Bingo on July 24th and Music & Comedy Night on July 25th.
There will also be a special Collection Showing of Artistic Expressions of the Saginaw Chippewa from Ziibiwing’s Permanent Collection on display from July 23rd thru July 28th.
Indian Car Bingo began on the Isabella Indian Reservation in the 1960’s. It was a way to remind the community of its humble beginnings in the gaming industry. Indian Car Bingo was started by the Tomah Club as a fundraising effort and is now a successful and unique community event.
The only difference here is that instead of calling “Bingo!” you honk your car horn and the prize is brought right over to you! Fun-loving participants have been known to replace the car for a patio set on a truck bed, a golf cart, a boat on a trailer or even a couch!
Bring your own food or take advantage of the local vendors who often have hot dogs, popcorn etc. available. The cost is $20 per Bingo player. The prizes are fabulous and include a Grand Prize of $1,200 in Gift Cards!
Music & Comedy Night is a free evening of family fun. This year starts off with a Cruise-in Car Show and continues with all sorts of entertainment for both kids and adults, including contests with prizes and a live on stage musical presentation! It’s open to the public.
