Bloomin' Gorgeous – Ottawa Hills Garden Tour in Full Bloom

Flower5

Check this out!

One of our most beautiful neighborhoods in Grand Rapids – Ottawa Hills – is having their annual Garden Tour on the 26th of June – just a few short weeks away – so get it on your calendar.  The tour is open from 9 – 1 and is a self guided walking tour among the gardens of this lovely Southeast side area.

Ottawa Hills has a very active neighborhood association and they have plenty of plans for you this summer.  Their annual Hollyhock Lane Parade on the 4th of July (actually the 3rd this year) always brings in lots of neighborhood kids – politicians – antique cars – and takes you back in time to a real old fashioned 4th Celebration.  It’s early in the day – starts at 8:30am – so it’s a great way to start your day before heading off to the beach.  This is the oldest running Parade in Michigan – so you get a little bit of history along with your 4th celebration by attending.
