September 3x3 West Michigan Events, Activities & More

Ross, Mitch, and Josh are coming to you this month from Ah-Nab-Awen Park to encourage you to get out and safely enjoy the final days of Summer at West Michigan events, entertainment, and more. There are plenty of local events, activities & learning opportunities for your freinds & family to enjoy in West Michigan this month. We hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy, safe, and soaking up the last bits of sunshine in West Michigan.

Ah-Nab-Awen Park boasts its lush greenery along the Grand River in the heart of West Michigan in downtown Grand Rapids. This park was once the grounds of a Native American village meaning "Resting Place". Ah-Nab-Awen (what a mouth full!) hosts a number of events year-round, however, it's also the perfect spot to spend a casual day enjoying the cityscape and sounds of the Grand River.

We hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy, safe, and enjoying the last days of sunshine and warmth of this Summer in West Michigan!

As always, our team is here as a resource for any of your real estate needs.
