Itâ??s a day people from northern Michigan look forward to all winter long.
â??We're very excited,â?? said Cherry Bowl Drive-In owner Laura Clark. â??Weâ??re always really excited for opening of the season the whole county just goes, â??oh yes summer is here when the cherry bowl opensâ?? so we're very excited.â??
It's been 62 years since the Cherry Bowl Drive-In opened in Benzie County, but not much has changed.
â??Just the family atmosphere is great Iâ??ve been doing it since I was his age and is just something we've always grown up with,â?? said Jason Poet.
In addition to the two movies, there is a stocked concession stand, a playground, and even putt putt golf.
â??It's better than sitting next to a bunch of people in a movie theater, it's just open with fresh air,â?? said Jamie Wahmhoff.
And they said that atmosphere is what keeps bringing them back year after year.
â??It's just fun I mean half the time we might fall asleep it always a good time,â?? said Kacie Poet. â??We play the mini-golf, always bring toys for the kids to play and they love the park as well.â??
â??I think for northern Michigan they feel that cherry bowl is part of them because it's been here and they can always bring their relatives here and it's just a part of the north in this area,â?? said Clark. â??It's just a cultural thing that belongs to everybody.â??
The Cherry Bowl Drive-In is open on weekends through June 12th, then will be open seven nights a week.
