The Petoskey area hosts a variety of events, including our favorite special events list to the left that we look forward to every year!
The Petoskey Film Theater will be showing the film "Black Swan" on Wednesday and Friday, March 30 and April 1, 7:30 pm at the Petoskey District Library, Carnegie Building (old library). Donations are appreciated. This film was nominated for 5 Academy Awards and stars Natalie Portman, who won an Academy Award for Best Actress.
Nina (Natalie Portman) is a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. SHe lives with her obsessive former ballerina mother Erica (Hershey) who exerts a suffocating control over her. When artistic director Thomas Leroy decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre for the opening productin of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side - a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
This film by visionary director Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler) takes a thrilling and at times terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the Swan Queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect.

Beer 101 - Short's Brewing Company, which was started in Bellaire in 2004, now brews and distributes more than 30 ale, pilsner, porter, stout and other craft beers throughout Michigan. Its success may be a model for how Michigan's economy can recover. Jon Wojtowicz, beer designer and ambassador for Short's, will explain the history of beer, how Prohibition reduced our nation's beers to a bland lager, and how Short's is part of a nationwide microbrew movement that is restoring beer's rich diversity and heritage. Samples will be available for tasting.
This tradition started with the idea that Harbor Springs was so quiet in the Spring that you could throw a bowling ball down Main Street and not hit anyone. Since then, it has grown into a fun family event that celebrates another year in Harbor Springs.
