Did you survive back to school week? Treat yourself to a fun weekend with one of the many events taking place in Grand Rapids. The Polish Heritage Society is hosting its annual festival while Blandford Nature Center kicks off its outdoor concert series.
Forget about the mud pies of your youth. The Grand Rapids Mud Run is serious about mud: expect to swim mud pits, slip down a 60-foot mudslide, slither through tunnel crawls, and wrangle a slippery hill climb.
From wizards and superheroes to running in the mud (yes, you read that right!), Grand Rapids has some fun activities during August no matter your age.
Organizers of the 2017 Grand Rapids Mud Run, a mud filled 5K, promise to up the anti this year with new obstacles and rearranged favorites.
