BLISSFIELD, MI (Toledo News Now) – Blissfield residents celebrated their annual Wassail Festival on Friday.

The Wassail Festival is traditionally a European celebration. Wassail is a cider people drink as they toast to good health and prosperity during the new year.

This is only the second time Blissfield has hosted this festival, and they expected a big turnout.

"[You can] do a little bit of last-minute shopping, enjoy some traditional wassail, and sing some carols with your family," said Patricia Rayl, main street manager for the Village of Blissfield.

Several hundred people went to 11 different businesses in town to taste different versions of wassail, and choose their favorite.

There was also a 5-K run.
