It's that time of the winter where we are hitting our wall of fatigue. We're exhausted. Our skin is beyond dry, and we would give our left leg for a few days without below freezing temperatures.

Good news if you're screaming for summer to hurry up, because one of the first signs of good weather to come is on it's way: The Parties in the Park in Muskegon.

They announced earlier this week that they will be making a loud fun return after having to take some time off like many in person events had to in 2020, and for eight weekends this summer you've got something fun to get into.

Parties in the Park is hosted by multiple Muskegon County non-profit groups. They say they plan to bring live music, drink tents, food, and a kid’s zone to Hackley Park from 5-9pm on Friday nights starting June 3rd.

Each week the non-profit organization changes, so if you would like to support a cause you're passionate about, make sure to show up and support them on their week.

  • June 3: Michigan Rotary Club
  • June 17: Women’s Division Chamber of Commerce
  • July 8: Muskegon Motorcycle Club
  • July 22: Age Well Services of West Michigan
  • July 29: West Michigan Speed Skating
  • August 5: Pay It Forward
  • August 19: JCI Greater Muskegon
  • August 26: Disability Network of West Michigan

They have not announced the final line-up, but they have confirmed it will include local favorites like  Flexadecibel, New country singer Hannah Ellis, and SIRSY.
