The Harvest Fest in Fremont
Things got kicked off with their perennially pleasurable parade Thursday evening and sources have reported there was once again an absolute bumper crop of candy harvested. There are lots of activities for Saturday including a run, antique tractors and kids games in the park. Oh and it is homecoming at the high school so come on over to the football field Friday and back the Pack (or Grant if you are a Tiger fan) and check out the halftime goings on.
Pulaski Days in GR
If you’ve never listened to a polka band at Kosciuszko Hall while scarfing down some golumpki and kapusta you haven’t had the Pulaski Days experience. Back in the day when we lived in our metro neighbor to the south this weekend meant hitting up few halls for some great food and a celebration of all things Polish. Though it seems the old West Side is becoming a bit gentrified these days the halls that house such dedicated groups such as the Knights of Saint Casimir, the Polish Falcons and the St. Ladislaus Aid Society continue to provide the Pulaski Days spark as they have for decades and the beer and eats are a bargain.
Hippie Fest returns to Val Du Lakes Saturday
Ok, gotta tell you, it seems a bit strange to see something like this. We haven’t been to one and realize they are an opportunity to draw in the hippie wannabe crowd as well as providing a little nostalgia for those who may have, shall we say, dabbled a bit in the movement (“What? This is a movement?”).
We fully intended to make it to one this year. They gathered in Ionia around mid summer but things were busy and this Saturday doesn’t work either but hey, if you go let us know what it was like for you.
And if you come back and begin a campaign for one of the local community theater groups to put on “Hair, The Musical” ?
We’ll figure the experience was a fruitful one.
Red Flannel Days- Cedar Springs.
This is one of the oldest festivals around and if you need one more carnival fix before shutting it down for the winter they got one. Also a craft fair, beverage tent and an ocean of red because wearing a little crimson is semi-required during the festivities. Remember, you’ve been duly warned on this.
The Grand Parade is Saturday at 3pm and they are likely lining up already because this is a good one.

Zach of Bass Case at Newaygo Brewing Co Saturday 12-4pm
