March is that tough month caught between winter and spring. To make the transition a little easier for you, GR|MAG has put together a list of six fun activities taking place during the month. Enjoy!
Get ready to weekend hard Grand Rapids. Take a trip down the yellow brick road with the Grand Rapids Ballet’s Junior Company or visit the butterflies at Frederik Meijer Gardens.
Former first lady and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton and Lynda Bird Johnson Robb, daughter of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, will be featured guests at the Betty Ford centennial celebration in April, “America’s First Ladies: An Enduring Legacy.”
Laurel Gaut might have one of the most fun jobs in Grand Rapids. Gaut is in charge of the Butterflies are Blooming exhibit at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.
Dig out your swim trunks this weekend. You read that right. Grand Rapidians will take a dip to raise money for the Special Olympics. You can also bundle up for the annual outdoor Winter Beer Festival.
While today’s sunshine might already have you daydreaming about summer, Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park has decided to give you another reason. FMG announced three of the bands coming to its amphitheater this summer as part of the Fifth Third Bank Summer Concert Series.
In one room, sketchbooks lie under glass—open diaries of intimate musings. In another, small steel sculptures rest on pedestals, catching the light as onlookers stroll by. The blue-gray and rust-colored walls are adorned with large framed drawings in every manner of color and shape.
