Grand Rapids Events That Families Return to Year After Year
Traditions run strong in my family. If we attend an event once, my kids assume that we will do it every year for the rest of our lives!
We’ve been to six of the events on this list, so we have four to go. Time to start some new traditions with the kids this year.
Earlier this year parents voted on their favorite places to play and live life in greater Grand Rapids in our GRANDTASTIC AWARDS. Parents also told us the best events in the area for family fun!
Check out the top ten list of these amazing events below.
