Northern Michigan University's Alumni Association will again host a hospitality tent for the general public near the starting gate of the UP 200 sled dog race on Friday, Feb. 17. The heated tent will be open from 6-9 p.m. on the corner of Washington and Fourth Streets. Admission is free.
This family-friendly event will include hot chocolate and cookies, while supplies last, and an opportunity to meet retired Alaskan Huskies. During "halftime" of the race start, visitors will be able to pose for a photo with the dogs and a dogsled.
