This Weekend in West Michigan

Summer is on it’s way, but even better – so is Tulip Time which is the beginning of all kinds of festivities and going-on’s around West Michigan.
For instance this Saturday – if you go to Dutch Village off of US-31 in Holland and pay admission you’ll get a season pass for the year for free. This is actually a really great deal. For some reason when I was in high school we always got free tickets to Dutch Village and I went with my best friend every year. Last week I took Jessica to Dutch Village to buy her a dutch costume and eat some lunch. She was enthralled with the ducks and the village.
We will definitely be making a stop there on Saturday.
Blossom Time Festival in Benton Harbor began on April 10 but this weekend seems to be the kick off for the festival.
This Sunday is also the first Allegan Antique Market at the Allegan County Fair Grounds. This goes on every last Sunday of every month through September. We didn’t make it to any last year, unfortunately, but this year? We’re going. Going every time, except for one or two when we’re out of town. Admission is $4 per adult and I assume children over 5 or so, parking is free. We only paid for Aaron and I.
You know how I love dancing? Yeah, I also love antiquing and taking photos of antiques and collecting old photographs. Most of our furniture is from this Bazaar or other antique outlets in general. I love antiques. No, really, I do. Bunches.
Things I’m looking for this year … a large, ornate old frame that I can use to frame an equally large, albeit new, cork board for my kitchen. And some type of Mission-style furniture, desk, buffet, dresser, that we can convert into our bathroom sink station.
So get off your couch and experience the fresh air this weekend!
