It’s the best time ever to get outside, and we’ve got an event that helps you celebrate! Read on to find out how sidewalk chalk will make the streets of Grand Rapids come alive this summer.

This month, downtown is where where you can let your artistic nature be seen all over! Work up an appetite with any of the cool activities happening outside, and then make sure you sit on the deck of any of our local restaurants and enjoy the sights and sounds of the city. Our merchant this month offers the perfect place for a summertime snack!

Let’s settle into summer: the downtown way. The way where we stroll and take everything in, where we say “hello” to passers by, where we gather for concerts in the park or we grab drinks and grub with good friends at an outdoor café. Whatever the way, there is nowhere else we’d rather be and we hope you’ll feel the same. Take advantage of the sunrises that greet us and the long light-filled nights that never seem to end. What new events will you attend, what longstanding ones will you try again? This is your downtown, welcome.

Congratulations to Gary Wybenga, who won a Culture Pass in our May giveaway. Look for a new giveaway each month!
