A new travelogue endeavor called Great Lakes TV – an Ann Arbor-based company that will be featuring locations throughout Michigan – is spotlighting Howell in the pilot episode of its new series, “Great Lakes Low Stakes.”
It’s a colorful, entertaining, insightful and humorous look at Howell – and you can watch the entire episode below.
Producers Kyle Clinton and Jay Jasinski say that Great Lakes TV will eventually be visiting cities all over the state, but they decided to start with Howell. The Great Lakes TV crew came to Howell last summer for the Melon Festival and spent a few days filming.
You’ll see the results in the video below. There’s a whole lot of great Howell information in the show – Sandie Cortez of the Howell Rotary Club explains how Howell Melon Ice Cream is made, while historian Lindsay Root provides an excellent tour of the Howell Opera House.
There’s a whole lot of dry humor in the show, too. Among other things, you’ll see the guys take a wrong turn as they’re looking for Thompson Lake, and somehow end up driving through the Howell Soft Cloth Car Wash.
