A FEAST JUST FOR KIDS

New this year for the Feast of the Strawberry Moon is Kid’s Day to be held on Friday, June 9, 2017 from 10:00am – 2:00pm out on Harbor Island in Grand Haven. This is an opportunity for school-aged children to visit the day before the event officially opens to get an inside look and a more in-depth view of the sights and sounds of life here along the banks of the Grand River from 1750 – 1800. Students will learn about voyageurs, those who paddled canoes to pick up furs; how Native Americans survived in harsh conditions making everything to meet their needs; and watch demonstrators who create goods in the same fashion using the same tools available to them more than 200 years ago. This event is open to school-aged children who must be accompanied by an adult. Advance registration is necessary.
