They have a Spring and Autumn festival. Skerbeck plays both. Skerbeck has played the September date since at least 1990. It was Crown Amusements before that, but around 1989 Dick Carl started playing down South after Labour Day, so he gave up all his September/October Michigan spots, one of which was Our Lady of Loretto.
