Last year just about everything was cancelled or postponed due to the coronavirus. That included many of the events at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture park. Hopefully 2021 will be a better year. With those hopes, they have released their schedule of events for 2021.
As the classic Christmas song goes..."It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!" It seems that this year people are going all out with their holiday light displays in their yards and at local businesses. Where are some of the coolest displays?
The volunteers at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park have been hard at work decorating for the annual Metro Health Christmas & Holiday Traditions exhibition! This year they are taking a closer look at all things "handmade" and this exhibition takes many hands to make it beautiful.
It’s the final weekend of the year 2019! There are still many Christmas themed activities. There are also a lot of things going on at the area museums. It’s also your last chance to get your FREE General Admission tickets forthe Grand Rapids Ball Drop on New Year’s Eve.
It’s the final weekend before Christmas. That means there are many Christmas, Chanukah, and Winter related activities this weekend. We also have more tickets for the Grand Rapids Ball Drop on New Year’s Eve. And, if you want to travel back to the 80’s for a few hours...there are a couple of events to do just that!
It’s a long Thanksgiving weekend for most people. We have events on Thanksgiving day and all weekend long. We have Christmas lights and traditions, a Turkey Trot, Hockey & Basketball, Music, Model Trains, and Tickets for New Year’s Eve.
It’s the first weekend of November. Don’t forget to “Fall Back” this Saturday night/Sunday morning as Daylight Saving Time ends on at 2:00 am on Sunday, November 3rd (We “Spring Forward” again on Sunday, March 8th, 2020). It’s also a good time to check those batteries in your smoke detectors. We have lots of comedy, music, holistic healers, nature, a .1K run (that’s about a block!), a cancer benefit for Jay Allen, KIDZ BOP, and a holiday gift show!
There are a couple of reasons to wear red this weekend...Pulaski Days and the Red Flannel Festival. It’s also the final Friday for the Food Trucks at Riverside Park. There’s theater, comedy, a chance to run on the runway at the airport, a Donut Fest, small trees and flowers, a Pumpkin Train, and an event for you and the dog.
