“Livin’ The Good Life” is the theme of this year’s Bass Lake Festival, and there will be plenty of opportunities to do just that at the lake throughout the weekend. Festivities kick off at 8 this morning with the fishing derby, which continues through 6 tomorrow evening. Stop by the Bass Lake Property Owners Association Building from 7 until 9 this evening for amateur open mic night. The Carlos Ramos Band will also provide live music starting at 8 p.m. across from Fingerhut Bakery. Click HERE for a complete schedule of Bass Lake Festival activities.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
