BridgeWater Music Festival, an Annual Labor Day concert.   Over a ten year period, an average of 20 to 25 variety acts appeared on the BridgeWater Stage. This opportunity for artists to show-case their numerous talents gathered wide support with business funding and enthusiastic community response.  Family oriented audiences devoted rapt attention to the accomplished “stars”.  Today, in the lobby of the Port Huron Times Herald, there is only one picture on their history wall which captures the musical spirit of the BlueWater Area.  That same photo is also featured in a published volume,. It is available in stores and libraries.
