MARQUETTE, Mich. – The Northern Michigan University Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreational Sports Department held the annual Fall Sports Kickoff Saturday (Sept. 11) before the NMU-Findlay football game.  Due to weather conditions the event was held inside the PEIF and in front of the Superior Dome.  The free community event attracted over 3,000 people.   

Fans participated in inflatable games, a lunch buffet provided by Econo Foods, activities with NMU student-athletes, a dunk tank, a climbing wall and much more. 

The event was sponsored in part by Econo Foods, The Point (100.3 FM), the Mining Journal and WLUC-TV6.
