What's On This Weekend: Aug 3-Sept 3

We blinked and it's the last weekend of summer fun (insert tears here and then turn those tears into a happy dance and then back to tears again). Make the most of it with a picnic, puppet show, pancake breakfast, powwow, parade, Pixar fountain concert -- basically all the P's.

Lots of fun is in the works for this weekend, including one of our favorite traditions: the Labor Day Truck Parade from Zeeland to Holland. There's ice cream too!

Get out there and enjoy this beautiful, bittersweet weekend, friends!
