West Michigan's Weekly Blog!!

First Blog Ever! We at West Michigan Tourist Association thought it would be a good idea to start a blog. This way we can show current up to date highlights of what is going on in West Michigan. Plus, this way you can comment and share your experiences of what you have done while visiting the Western Half of the state.

Coming up this summer- West Michigan has tons upon tons of festivals, events, concerts, etc. to make plans to attend! West Michigan locals and visitors alike look foward to attending Tulip Time in Holland is celebrating their 79th year of good ol' Dutch Heritage. Taking place May 3-10, 2008 this festival is always a terrific time for all with food, music fireworks, klompen dancers and street scrubbers. New this year is Tulipalooza held May 6-9. Tulipalooza will be held at the Sixth Street Stage concert area and feature FREE concerts! Artists include Pop Evil, Headed for Zen, Bronk Bros. & Headin South. Saturday, May 10, mark your calendars for the Bier & Muziek Fest that will feature "That 80's Band", Jimmy Staggard & LaSondra Leffler.

A new festival this year is the Rothbury Festival taking place on the Double JJ Ranch and Resort in Rothbury. This is a new idea featuring a number of excellent choices for bands--Dave Matthews Band, Phil Lesh and Friends, John Mayer, Snoop Dogg, Modest Mouse, and the list goes on and on and on. It will be great fun!

Tell us about the events you are looking foward to this summer in West Michigan!
