Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) May 06, 2011
Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced that its Boyne, Michigan timeshare resort, Mountain Run at Boyne, offers relaxing accommodations for mushroom lovers taking part in the National Morel Mushroom Festival May 12-15, 2011. Bluegreen’s resort, Mountain Run at Boyne, looks forward to providing guests with an exceptional place to stay during their hunt for the exotic morel mushroom.
“When morels start popping up in the woods, it’s a sure sign that spring has sprung,” says Aimee Blackford, General Manager at Mountain Run at Boyne. “Every May hundreds of people travel to Boyne in search of this tasty delicacy.” She continues, “After a day of shrooming in Northern Michigan, there’s nothing like a cozy fireplace to make you feel at home. You can even cook up a hearty meal in your full kitchen featuring morel mushrooms as the main ingredient.”
The National Morel Mushroom Festival takes place May 12-15, 2011, and features seminars, carnival rides, shows and crafts. Vendors will be on hand with everything every type of morel souvenir imaginable. Michigan’s top country band, Annabelle Road, will also be performing live along with other local bands. Be sure to bring your recipes and get ready to share—because there are always tasty new ways to prepare morels. Part of the fun of this festival is seeking out and digging up the morels on your own. Experienced shroomers know where to look. First time hunters should seek out areas with plenty of ground moisture surrounded by dead or decaying trees. If you’re craving morels but don’t want to hunt them down, you’ll be able to find them on the menus of restaurants all over town.
Bluegreen’s Boyne, Michigan resort is convenient to an abundance of wooded areas perfect for morel mushrooms hunting expeditions. The area is also home to a variety of activities and attractions including championship golf, Michigan’s largest indoor water park, Boyne City Historical Museum and a farmer’s market. Guests can enjoy the comfort and convenience of Mountain Run at Boyne during this marvelous morel mushroom weekend.
