The Suggestion Box-Weekend Stuff To Do
By N3 Entertainment Squad
Admittedly there arrives the occasional weekend when not a lot seems to be going on in our parts. Oh, there might be a bit of music here and there and a couple of fundraisers or celebrations among various groups, however things can sometimes get a little quiet particularly in the early months of the year folks have perhaps pulled in a little.
We at N3 World Headquarters and Seawall Fish Depository are more than aware of how things begin to get a bit busier this time of year. It is after all the last weekend of April giving way to those promised May flowers and inching us closer to the magic of summertime in the Mitten.
This weekend brings days filled with activities throughout...
...our fair region. Fun that awaits those of us lucky enough to call our area home as well as the wide array of visitors and part time residents who share our passion for the Near North.
It's Trout Season!

Get out the poles grab some bait and do not forget to purchase your fishing license if you don’t already have it. Need some supplies or perhaps advice? Check out the folks at Muskegon River Fly Shop. It’s what they do.
