June 8 & 9, 2019

school days


Last years Kid’s Day for the Feast of the Strawberry Moon on Harbor Island in Grand Haven was a great success! School-aged children had an opportunity to visit the day before the event officially opend 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 learned about voyageurs, those who paddled canoes to pick up furs; how Native Americans survived in harsh conditions making everything to meet their needs; and watched demonstrators create goods in the same fashion using the same tools available to them more than 200 years ago. This event was open to school-aged children who were accompanied by an adult.
