What's On This Weekend: August 18-20

We can wallow over the fact that more than half of August has already slipped out of our grasp, or we can vow to get out this weekend and explore to the content of our kiddos' hearts. Stomp some grapes, enter the littles in a pie-eating contest, check out amazing contraptions and gizmos, ride the Tilt-a-Whirl, hunt spiders and settle in for a movie in the park at dusk.

The entire Southwest Michigan area is your weekend playground. What are you gonna do?
