The Grand Rapids Downtown Development Authority will set up a big screen for the second screening of its Movies in the Park series Friday night.

The event takes place downtown at Ah-Nab-Awen Park, west of the Grand River.

The festivities begin at 7 p.m. and include swing dancing, face painting, and multiple food vendors. The theme is enchantment under the sea.

Steve Hilger Band


SHB will be at the SpeakEZ  tonight,  Friday, August 16th starting at 9 p.m.!

According to Steve…

Joining me will be the great, the one and only John Gist on sax, two-keyboard Brian Drews, Mr. Funk, David DeVos on Bass, and surrounded by Drums Bill Roelofs. If we are lucky, Deborah Richmond will stop by so her mother, Barbra Barbara Richmond can hear her sing! This will be a fun night…

Feeling kinda blue…
