Update: Big Bounce GR Stop Cancelled

When the sun comes out and the temperature goes up, Michiganders love to be outside. Outdoor activities top almost every list of things to do in the summer.

And we were so excited to spend a day at MacKay-Jaycee Park for Big Bounce America.

As of June 2, 2024, the Grand Rapids stop has been canceled. No word on the reason for the cancelation. People who’d already bought tickets were issued refunds with a note that the event has been canceled.

Big Bounce America has, however, added a stop in Frankenmuth, dubbed as a “Special Event.” They’ll be set up at the Frankenmuth River Place Shops during the Dog Bowl August 8 – 10, 2024.

Wow! Big Bounce Heads to SE GR Park

Mark your calendars for June 28 – 30 when Grand Rapids transforms MacKay-Jaycees Park into the playground of your wildest dreams with The Big Bounce America.

The Big Bounce is part summer fair, part amusement park and all fun.
