Millersburg, Michigan is a village in Presque Isle County within Case Township. According to the 2010 census, the village had a population of 206. There were 86 households, and 54 families. The Iceberg USA Festival was an annual event that began in 1980, which was comprised of many winter-themed activities and was intended to give people a reason to get together during the winter months. The 1984 festival included a Snowball Dance, a Queen's Pageant, a snow sculpture contest, cross country ski races, a snowmobile run, a snowmobile safari, a talent contest, family cross-country skiing, a bonfire with homemade chili, and the Iceberg Grand Parade. During the 1984 festival, Lori Lail was crowned Miss Millersburg. The $1 Iceburg button had to be purchased and worn in order to be admitted to most of the festival's events. Those not wearing the button were subject to “jailing” by Iceburg Cops. Due to a lack of volunteers, few willing pageant contestants, and a decline in snowfall , the festival was last held in 1998.
