The village of Ephraim will try to blend new with the old when it hosts its 53rd annual Fyr Bal this weekend. While the event will still feature its traditional Saturday burning of the “winter witch” on the shores of Eagle Harbor prior to naming the 2017 chieftain, the event will feature the first alcohol sales in its history and new activities both on the land and on the water. Director of Tourism Rocky Marciano says Fyr Bal will move into the future without leaving its past behind.
Fyr Bal kicks off Friday and concludes on Sunday with area church services. You can find the full schedule online with this story.
