Great way to start the weekend is to take a little saunter through the Farmers Market at Brooks Park in downtown Newaygo on Friday afternoon.. We all like the idea of having a farmer’s market but for this edible enterprise to thrive and prosper the vendors need to see some action, correct? Well, there is no better time to make the acquaintance of our purveyors of fresh food than the present with the outpouring of farm to table goods increasing by the day. Hitting up the market also provides an opportunity to chat with John Mellema, who always has a few surprises on his table to go with some really fine plants and such. If you miss it on Friday head to Fremont Saturday morning and their Marketplace a block from the main drag.
While there stop into the NCCA Artsplace and check out their array of local art. It is well worth a stroll through
Friday and Saturday from 9am-6pm The Shack, that delightful oasis of outdoor activity in Jugville will be hosting the Old Engine Club Annual Show. Not into old engines but like someone a lot who is? Then wander the grounds and take in some upbeat bluegrass music, a bit of blacksmithing, ice cream making, horseshoeing and any number of intriguing activities that beg to be observed. Food will be available on the grounds as well. Not sure where Jugville is? Well it’s a bit north and east of Wooster if that’s any help.
From 3-6 Saturday the White Cloud Community Library will be hosting a Pig Roast and Community Picnic. Seven bucks ($3.50 for under 8 y.o.) gets you a plate of fine food a drink to accompany it, dessert and there will be kids activities, door prizes and more. Come out for a good time, bump into some friends and neighbors all the while supporting the efforts of those fine folks known as the Friends of the Library.
Maybe you didn’t get a ticket to the BlissFest and you’re feeling a little deprived since friends are up there listening to all the great music emanating from the stage,
Never fear help is just around the corner.
The Bootstrap Boys will be storming into the Black Box of the Dogwood Center Saturday night and will be ready to knock down some serious classic country sound. You need to check these folks out on youtube because this one looks to be a racuos night of fun in the club-like atmosphere of The Box where you can enjoy an adult beverage or two while listening to music that will touch the Waylon, Willie, Johnny, Merle part of your heart.
Here’s the skinny:
Yoga enthusiasts or wannabees?
Looking to try something new? Maybe expand your yoga horizons a bit?
