GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—The community is invited to celebrate Labor Day with the West Michigan Labor Fest September 2 in Ah-Nab-Awen Park.
This is the fifth year for the Labor Fest, which begins shortly after Mayor George Heartwell’s bridge walk. The event includes free admission to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum, which is celebrating what would have been President Ford’s 100th birthday. Visitors can also enjoy live music, food from local restaurants, arts and crafts vendors, the American Made Classic Car & Motorcycle Show and a beer tent. Children can hitch a free ride on a mini Ferris wheel or check out the bouncy house, Berry-Go-Round, games, chalk art and face painting.
ArtPrize 2010 winner Chris LaPorte will be on hand, creating caricatures for families. For more information, visit the West Michigan Labor Fest’s website.
