The National Baby Food Festival in Fremont continues its run through Saturday with the carny in town and a variety of family friendly activities, music, entertainment and the opportunity to treat some local folk to a soaking in the Dunk Tank while supporting our local Cancer Center.
Here’s where to visit for details on the schedule:
Ever been to Bitely?

Bitely is a cool place and home of the Bitely Boys a group of bikers who quietly go about the business of benevolence in the classiest manner possible.
What’s that? You’ve never done Bitely in the middle of summer?
No better time.
I remember driving into Albuquerque back in our pre kids days on a lengthy road trip and as we came over a hill there was an explosion of hot air balloons rising out of the desert.
It was breathtaking since neither Lil nor I had ever witnessed a hot air launching at the time being it was the mid 70’s a before such lift offs were even a blip on the west Michigan radar.
If you want to see of these beauties take to the sky (weather permitting of course) and don’t mind a small road trip to Hudsonville check out the Grand Rapids Balloon Festival Friday and Saturday.
And just for a little early warning next Thursday at 7pm the Newaygo Library is bringing in Coy Davis to show his documentary”Whatever Happened To Idlewild” and speak about the history of the town.
A few years back Mr. Davis brought his presentation to the White Cloud Library and the response was so electric the event was moved to the County Commission meeting room to accommodate the crowd.
Idlewild has a rich history and was the centerpiece of what was once a thriving and prosperous resort community. Mr. Davis gives a compelling account of its rise and fall.
