Fall is Nearly as Festive as Christmas

I can’t be the only one who relishes in the back-to-school season. Even before I had kids, there’s something about September that excites me as it ushers in a season of routines and fresh beginnings. (Raise your hand if you make more resolutions in September than January!)

Even while settling into a more standard daily routine, there are still plenty of fun things to do in September to spice up your day.

Festivals and Fairs are still going strong, cooler temperatures make for ideal hiking weather, and of course there’s all the Apple and Pumpkin picking you can get your hands on.

And once October hits, it’s time for all things Halloween in Grand Rapids.

Print off our list to keep handy and pick and choose as you go. As always, be sure to check our Daily Calendar to see what the latest happenings and events are going on near you.
