WCSX honors beautiful Fraser, Michigan by making Fraser City of The Week! Screamin’ Scott and trusty cameraman/cinematographer, Will Spurrier teamed up and visited some fun, fascinating people and places in Fraser, “A Centennial Community.” Scroll down to check out the pictures of Screamin’ Scott’s adventures or read the recap first and know more about this amazing city and its history!
Fraser Hockey Land And Fraser Star Lanes
Fraser is just a short hop from where I grew up in Warren. A lot of memories come to mind, first and foremost, playing pee wee hockey at Fraser Hockey Land for most of my childhood. Fraser Hockey Land was also host to some major concerts in the mid-1970s. I looked it up in the concert database and KISS as well as Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band played at Fraser Hockey Land! I’m happy to say that the facility has grown through the years. It’s now home to 5 separate ice rinks and is known as Big Boy Arena.
Fraser is home to a few bowling alleys, the oldest being Fraser Star Lanes (formally Miceli’s). I think the owners are fantastic. The bowling alley has been family-owned for many years and they treat you like family. They provide an excellent service to the Fraser community.
The City Fraser Municipal Complex
Screamin’ Scott got special treatment at the Fraser Fire Station. The City of Fraser Municipal Complex is home to the City of Fraser offices, the Police Department, and EMS. What a fantastic group they have working there! I feel honored by the special photo op with the large fire truck with a ladder. The Fraser Fire Department pulled out all the bells and whistles to make us feel welcome. Thank you!
Fraser Historical Businesses and Buildings
Huber Breeze is a family-owned music store in the City of Fraser. For 51 total years, Huber Breeze has been serving the community. It’s a music lover’s dream. Every time I walk into Huber Breeze, I see walls of guitars, a full drum area, and a staff that’s the best by a mile.
A notable historical stand-out to me is the First State Bank of Fraser on the corner of 14 Mile and Utica Road. The building dates back to 1910. Although it’s not an operational bank, it’s still a long-time landmark in Fraser, City of the Week with WCSX! I notice it every time I pass by.
