What's Happening? May 27-June 2

By Sarah Boucher, Publisher Macaroni Kid Grand Haven, Spring Lake, and Muskegon May 27, 2020


The end of the school year is here, and it's very strange that we will be picking up/dropping off items drive-through style and that the "meet your teacher" tradition will be carried out via Zoom.  Reality is setting in a bit that there has been a lot of loss for a lot of people, and the unknown is scary (for me at least). So, we are doing our best to focus on the positive, make the best of any situation, and know that we're still all in this together (cue the "High School Musical" soundtrack ha ha!)  

We have been out exploring parks and trails, and have a goal of visiting at least one new place each week. Last week we visited Arborteum Park in Fremont. A little park that has some beautiful spots for photo opportunities. Perhaps I shouldn't share this hidden gem with you, but you know, it's all about being a resource to help you find your family fun!

We want to hear from YOU!  What would you like to see on Macaroni Kid?  Where are some of your favorite places to explore?  What are your favorite local businesses?  Drop an email to and sound off!  Macaroni Kid is here for YOU!


Here are some articles to check out to find your family fun at home:

  • If you're a maker, baker, or crafter, you won't want to miss the opportunity to be featured in our Maker Marketplace!

The 2020 Pet Photo Contest winners are being announced today! Head on over to Facebook to see the winning photos.  

An Update on Events:

  • As in-person events start to take place, please be sure to do your research to make sure you follow all venue requirements for social distancing.  We will do our best to include information in our event posting, but with things changing fast, a double check is always a good idea!
  • Stay tuned to our calendar and Facebook as we share events and happenings around town that are either virtual, drive-through, or are outdoor activities.  And remember, there are many ways to find your family fun at home.  


We make mini donuts!
We make them on location and serve them warm and fresh with amazing toppings like maple bacon, raspberry habanero, salted caramel, smores, cookies & cream and more.  
All you have to do is enjoy them!

Don't forget about the Food Truck Selfie Giveaway!  You could win a gift card to Olly's!
