Celebration of the Grand – Come Celebrate Grand Rapids!
My Favorite Things to Do at Celebration on the Grand:
Absolutely top on the list is the Fireworks Display over the Grand River in Downtown Grand Rapids on Friday, September 10 at 9:30pm . Often set to music – this display can be seen from every corner of the City – but a few secret places to watch it are:
– sitting on a log on the bank of the Grand River just below the Gerald Ford Museum
– sitting at the corner of Michigan and Monroe in your lawn chair (not so many crowds)
– the maternity ward of Butterworth Hospital (the noise will certainly help with the contractions).
2. The Music
This year’s lineup is spectacular:
Thursday at Rosa Parks Circle – Headliner: Chris Young at 9:15 (but loads of entertainment all evening)
Friday at Rosa Parks Circle – Headliner: Jimmy Stagger right after fireworks – but loads of enterainment beforehand.
Friday at Ah-Nab-Awen Park: 5pm starts the fun with Trilogy – then wonderful entertainment culminating at 9:30 with the Fireworks.
Saturday – Mark Farner – formerly from Grand Funk Railroad – Headliner at Rosa Parks Circle
3. The Food
Oh Mmmmmm – Loads of some of the top restaurants have their tastes for stolling and tasting! Go on down and enjoy.
