Join in the celebrations!
Every season brings an occasion to celebrate in the Grand Haven area. First up in the spring are the Chilly Blues, Lubbers Cup Regatta, and Great Lakes Kite Festival. Summer pops with a premier lineup, including the Spring Lake Heritage Festival, Sand Sculpture Contest, Grand Haven Art Festival, 4th of July Fireworks, Coopersville Summerfest, and the nationally-renowned Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival. Fall is honored with September’s Salmon Festival, Grand Haven Artwalk, GVSU Lakers football games at Lubber's Stadium, and the Famous Pumpkin Train in Coopersville. It may be cold outside, but hearts are warm when the Grand Haven community presents its traditional Jingle Bell Parade to welcome Santa and Mrs. Claus. Attending Winterfest in January is a long standing tradition, as families enjoy activities such as the cardboard sled race and dog pulls.
Join us in celebrating all that makes our area unique and attractive.
Run For The Lights - 5K & Fun Run
"Run for the Lights" is a 5k run / 1 mile walk to benefit the Grand Haven Lighthouse Conservancy. This family event will take place on Friday, February 8, 2013 at 6:00pm. Registration begins at 4:30pm.
The 2013 Run for the Lights will be a fun, fitness oriented family event in downtown Grand Haven to be attended by hundreds of lighthouse and Rotary supporters. We will gather after dark for a 5k run or a 1 mile run/walk. All participants will receive a head lamp and a very special commemorative shirt. We will crowd up in the intersection of 3rd and Washington for a “lights out” lighthouse supporting photograph before we start the race toward the lights. Afterwards participants are encouraged to share a meal at one of our downtown restaurant supporters at a discounted rate.
