Plans for a massive history festival in Ludington have hit a massive snag.
History Prize is modeled after ArtPrize, the massive art competition in Grand Rapids. Instead of art, this 19-day event would celebrate history.
Small community, big event
The small lakeshore community of Ludington won a competitive bid process to host History Prize, which is still scheduled to launch in the summer of 2016. But if it does, it will move forward without the support of some key players – including the Ludington Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and the local board that formed to build History Prize.
