Grand Rapids’ Celebration on the Grand

April 25th, 2014 by Katie K Team


End your summer in Grand Rapids with a bang (literally) at the 35th Annual Celebration on the Grand. This year marks the first year that the Celebration on the Grand will merge with downtown Grand Rapids’ Amway Family Fireworks on July 4 and 5. The annual celebration was implemented years ago to celebrate the quality of life in the Grand River valley. Events include live entertainment in Rosa Parks Circle and Ah-Nab-Awen Park downtown and a fireworks display over the Grand River. Both the entertainment on Friday and the fireworks on Saturday are free of charge.

Alongside poetry, films, storytelling and art activities will be food booths offering cuisine of all kind.
