A Note From Your Publisher

By Sarah Boucher, Publisher and Editor, Macaroni Kid Grand Haven, Spring Lake & Muskegon March 27, 2021


This week your newsletter is coming to you early as we have a special Easter edition. For those of you not wanting to cook a holiday meal, be sure to check out our Easter meal guide for a variety of buffet and take out options. You can also get a FREE personalized letter from the Easter bunny, and get some last minute Easter basket ideas for teens and tweens. 

Will you be doing an egg hunt or decorating eggs? I'm not really a fan of egg decorating, but it's a tradition in my family and my kiddos won't let me out of it! So, I've called in my niece as a reinforcement and she loves artsy stuff, so she'll be helping me out -- and there will be pizza involved, so that always helps!  

Speaking of pizza, don't forget to check out our Best Local Pizza of 2021. After over 900 votes, Bernie O's reigns supreme. There are 10 other great places to try too. Let us know which places you try and if you find any new favorites!


Whether you're wanting to stay close to home or get out and explore, the calendar of events has something to offer for everyone.  Did you know that when you go to the monthly calendar on the events page you can search by category?  A new category of "online" has been added to help you easily navigate to online/virtual events!  Should you choose to attend in-person events, please be sure to adhere to any requests or recommendations of the hosting group or venue regarding social distancing and other precautions being taken to help ensure the health and safety of attendees.  

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 on our website with recipes, crafts, and more!.  


Many summer camps are ON for 2021!  With a variety of in-person and virtual options for both spring and summer, don't forget to check out our 2021 Summer Camp Guide.

If you have questions about COVID safety plans and procedures, be sure to contact the camp directly. Some camps are offering early bird registration discounts and/or sibling discounts, so be sure to ask about those as well.
