What's On This Weekend: June 7-9

We love weekends like this one, when there is such a diverse selection of awesome (and largely free!) family-friendly activities every day in Southwest Michigan. So join in a dance party or parade, hit up something artsy, go for a hike -- and don't forget strawberries are ready for U-pick (we'll put up a post about where to find them soon).

Keep scrolling for all the details and enjoy this beautiful weekend!
