HERMANSVILLE, MI (AP)--   A popular four-day music festival in Menominee County has been canceled due to the coronavirus.

The Woodtick Music Festival in Hermansville had planned to have 30 bands on two stages, starting July 30. It would have been the 27th annual event.

On their website, Woodtick organizers say they've been shut down over concerns about mask compliance and adequate distance between spectators.

The festival began in 1994 with a group of people cooking hot dogs, playing music and watching a Green Bay Packers game.
