Get ready to do Durand Railroad Days like never before, with a welcome event that includes free rides.  That's right -- free rides!  No wristband required!  But if you want to be part of the fun, you'll need to wake up extra early.

From 6 to 8am on Thursday May 18th, select rides will operate and everyone can come downtown and ride for free.

This has never been done in Durand Railroad Days history.

Durand Railroad Days will feature an all new midway this year, by Big Rock Amusements.  All are invited to downtown Durand for this kickoff to a weekend filled with fun events like a BBQ competition for children and adults, wine tasting, chainsaw carver, BubbleBall, Beautiful Baby Contest and Cow Bingo.

Plus, the historic Durand depot, Durand Union Station and Michigan Railroad History Museum will be open to visitors with additional activities.

Lennon Police Chief Rich Folaron told Durand Now late Friday night that an earlier incident involving both State and local officers was a domestic disturbance.  Folaron said Lennon Police assisted State Police on the call that came from just outside the village, and that an arrest was made. 

At around 7pm Friday evening, several Lennon residents reported seeing a heavy police presence in the southern portion of the village, on M-13 between the post office and I-69.
