Local briefing

Mountain Dew releasing U.P. labels

MARQUETTE — Residents will be able to see the newest Mountain Dew bottles with a custom Upper Peninsula label at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Upper Peninsula Supply Company, 221 W. Washington St., Marquette.

In July, the company made a geographical mistake when the U.P. was incorrectly labeled as part of Wisconsin on its DEWnited States map.

A large “activation” space for people to “dunk” Mountain Dew employees, families and friends into a dunk tank will run Monday through Wednesday at the Upper Peninsula State Fair in Escanaba. Thousands of free bottles and swag will be given to attendees.
