GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) — It’s going to be a beautiful weekend in West Michigan, which means it’s a great time to spend some quality time with your family! We have a full list of what’s happening around your community this weekend, so get out and enjoy it together! Make it a great weekend Where You Live!
Our friends at the Battle Creek Community Foundation and Milk Means More have partnered to host the World’s Longest Breakfast Drive-Thru! This is taking place this Saturday, June 27th at Carson-Rizer Athletic Field in Battle Creek (400 West Michigan Ave) from 9am – 12pm! Families can drive up and get a dairy box full of delicious dairy products from Prairie Farms.
Public outdoor areas, such as state parks, recreation areas, wildlife areas, state forests, trails and lakes are open to the public to come enjoy what the beautiful state of Michigan has to offer. They still encourage social distancing, but want families to be able to get outside and have some fun!
Although the usual Taste of Muskegon was unable to happen this year, they got creative so the beloved event could still happen in a safe way! The Taste of Muskegon is going virtual this year with restaurants and food trucks around Downtown Muskegon offering a “taste menu” with four items for families to order and enjoy. The streets of Downtown Muskegon have even been transformed into socially distanced seating areas for families to enjoy their food. This is the last weekend for Taste of Muskegon, so enjoy it while you can!
Silver Lake is a great destination for family fun and it’s just a quick trip northwest of Grand Rapids! Several outdoor family fun spots are open throughout Silver Lake, including the Sand Dunes, Craig’s Cruisers (including their new roller coaster!), and the Silver Lake Chicken Shack, where you can get a delicious dinner of chicken wings. This is a perfect day trip to enjoy a classic Michigan summer!
