Friday Night marks the 3rd anniversary celebration for Newaygo Brewing Co. and among other special nuances this weekend there will be music.
Lots of music.
The Jetts take the stage from 7:30-11pm Friday night then Jack Leaver does an afternoon acoustic show from 1-5 Saturday before giving way to the The Big Boss Band who will rock the place properly from 7:30-11pm.
Saturday is an opportunity to take part in the 4th annual Walk for Autism at the Fremont High School Football Field. Registration is free and starts at 9:00 a.m. The walk will start at 9:30. Pledges are welcome, but not required. The theme will again be Superheroes, giving tribute to the heroes of our community, including law enforcement, firefighters, first responders, EMT's, health care providers, teachers, veterans, and active duty service men and women.
Great cause, great folks, and perhaps one of those wonderful spring days that just beg for you to get outside for a bit.
