3×3 – July 2018 – Summer is in full swing!

Summer is in full swing and we’re excited! We are taking every opportunity to soak in the sunshine and warm weather with our family and friends and we hope you’re all doing the same!


We are back with this month’s 3×3 video coming in hot from the cottage to share a few fun events you don’t want to miss this month. Enjoy these events and then be sure to check back next month to see what other events we’re looking forward to in Grand Rapids!



Food Truck Fridays

Riverside Park    

Weekly event – 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Event Website: https://www.experiencegr.com/event/food-truck-fridays-at-riverside-park/57168/

After last year's success with Food Truck Fridays, they have extended the season and partnered with the Grand Rapids Food Truck Association to bring the best group of trucks. Make sure to check in each week to see which trucks will be there. All trucks take credit cards, and have a variety of options including gluten free and vegan.


The Color Run

Calder Plaza

Saturday, July 28th, 2018 at 9am

Event Website: https://thecolorrun.com/locations/grand-rapids-mi/

The Color Run is often called the Happiest 5k on the planet because it’s less about the speed you’re running and more about having fun along the way. This untimed event is a great way to get in a little activity while having fun with friends and family. We suggest wearing all white as you’ll be hit with color at every kilometer and by the end you look like a rainbow!

Ah-Nab-Awen Park (Thursday)

Hudsonville Fairgrounds (Friday & Saturday)
