31 Days of May Fun for Kids in Grand Rapids – Including 14 Free Ideas

31 Days of May Fun Feature Image

More Sunlight = More Fun

How May we have fun this year? By doing all sorts of things here in Michigan as we enter the gloriously long days of the summer season (even though it’s only the “unofficial” start to it).

With all the extra sunlight there is plenty to do to get you outdoors and reveling in all the #pureMichigan goodness as well still have opportunities to play indoors when that fickle spring weather turns to rain.

Mermaids are invading South Haven, tulips are back in bloom in Holland, and parades! So many parades, but that’s to be expected for Memorial Day.

We’ve put together a list of something fun to do every day this month, but be sure to check our Daily Calendar 

Here’s a round-up of Top Pick events for May. Be sure to check our daily calendar as new events are constantly being added, and start planning your fun packed month of May.
