Crankin' Weekend in Ypsilanti

Do you know what a hurdy-gurdy is??? What about a "monkey organ"??? Want to find out?

This weekend, the Mid-America Chapter of the Musical Box Society International will be presenting the 34th annual Band Organ Rally in downtown Ypsilanti. Society members will be playing a variety of large roll-operated carousel, band organs, and hand-cranking music on portable organs.

Everyone is invited to enjoy the music and try their hand at cranking some of the smaller organs.

Band Organ Rally - July 31 - August 1
Riverside Park & Depot Town
Time: Begins at 10:00 am daily
