A New Locale
It’s Labor Day weekend and that means the annual Arts & Crafts exhibitionary endeavor will hit downtown Newaygo like every other year right?
Close but no cigar.
In case you haven’t driven through our River Town the past few months there is a bit of construction going on near the usual site of the Labor Day gathering.
But never fear because crafters and artisans are nothing if not resilient so when organizers decided to shift the action to Shaw Park participants got on board and one will find their favorite vendors primed and pumped to do business in the alternate locale.
Action begins TODAY and runs through Sunday and you can save yourself from any parking issues by hopping on one of the free shuttles.
And if you stop in to check out the enticing offerings from Little Mitten Soaps be sure to tell them Ken sent you.
They will likely say “Ken who?” but tell them anyway.
A Good Start
The annual Pancake Breakfast at the Newaygo Fire Department runs from 7-11am Saturday and you are guaranteed to not leave disappointed nor hungry.
177 Cooperative Center Drive.
Breakfast items will include pancakes, sausage, eggs, and tater tots and includes coffee, milk, apple juice, and orange juice.
The cost is merely a donation but hey, open up that wallet and be a little generous. Funds raised at this event will go toward the purchase of new battery-powered tools and we all want our fire folks to have the tools they need right?
N3 Food Truck Survey Top 3 vendor Sweet Racks & Smokin’ Butts BBQ will be settling in Saturday from 11am-6pm at Hess Lake. If you’re one of their regular customers you already have it penciled in but if you are still a neophyte to the food truck scene the BBQ delectables at SR&SB will make you an adherent.
Last big summer weekend so if you haven’t hit the deck at the Driftwood this weekend promises some tickles and tunes with Comedy night Friday (TONIGHT) starting at 7pm, and a huge local favorite the Denise Anderson Band getting it on Saturday from 4-8pm and Sunday from 3-7pm.
There you go fellow bipeninsularians. Last weekend of the summer so revel, citizens, revel.
