On August 19th, from 11am –6pm, we are bringing the Best of Creston businesses and neighbors together this summer to show the rest of Grand Rapids what the northeast side has to offer! Creston Brewery is planning a series of bands and a beer tent, Lions & Rabbits is hosting a paint-by-number mural on the outside of their building as they gear up for Creston's first ArtPrize, there will be a raffle for adults and one for kids which participants enter by moving from business to business earning “stamps” on a passport. Our local restaurants will feature specialty Best of Creston fare, ice cream carts and other eats and drinks are planned along the corridor. Family-friendly scavenger hunts, obstacle courses, crafts, sidewalk chalk art and other ideas are in the planning stages in addition to a dunk tank, henna tattoos & mini-massages. Local nonprofits will be showcasing the cool things their organizations are doing and so much more.
