Time to celebrate bologna at a festival this weekend

It is time to give appreciation to bologna in Yale, Michigan.

Got bologna?

A small town in Michigan's Thumb is celebrating the deli meat with its annual Bologna Fest, which started Thursday and runs through Sunday in Yale.

There will be an outhouse race, horseshoes, street dance, fireworks and a parade on Yale's Main Street, 30 miles northwest of Port Huron. And what's a festival without a bologna king and queen? They'll be crowned Friday night.

Yale is known for making bologna since 1906. A local company run by the Roy family still is producing it. They're known as the "meat people."
