Spring Into Fun This March
Will March roar in like a lion or meekly stumble in like a lamb? Time will tell, but March is sure to be loaded with all sorts of fun as we start to shake off some of the winter blues and look for the signs of spring and the promise of longer days.
You can tell the seasons are shifting as butterflies and gardens bloom, maple syrup is celebrated, and more rain puddles than snow banks. There are all of sorts of movie outings, princesses, monster trucks, and even a chance to see if you’re faster than “speeding locomotive.”
Be sure to check our daily calendar for even more exciting West Michigan adventures.
