CRYSTAL FALLS--The Second Sunday Folk Dance series, held at Fortune Lake Camp on the second Sunday of each month, is one of three finalists for the 2014 Upper Peninsula Folklife Award.
For the past 29 years, Dean and Bette Premo have hosted the Second Sunday series Fortune Lake Camp. It is one of the Midwest’s most popular venues for folk music and dance and is the largest, longest running event of its kind. 
In addition, they have been performing for three decades with their legendary folk groups, White Water and the Front Parlor Dance Band. Their efforts have been instrumental to the preservation and enjoyment of traditional dance and music in the Upper Peninsula, at secondsundayfolkdance.com.
