Summer has ended but there's still so much to do in Muskegon


Hearthstone wins Chef Prize, but KFB is real winner

Hampton Green Farms (HGF), a beautiful facility which primarily develops dressage competition horses, has once again hosted an elegant chef competition, a fund-raiser for Kids’ Food Basket programs in Muskegon.

The proceeds will further KFB’s mission of providing take-home sack suppers for schoolchildren from income-challenged families.
This year, the Hearthstone won the prize. Its chef staff are shown below with Kimberly Boyer, HGF President.


Who knew touching trucks could be such fun?

Despite fairly cold weather that threatened rain, lots and lots of children came downtown last Friday night to touch trucks... and boats and trailers and ambulances and more.

Western Avenue was full of touchable vehicles from the Farmers’ Market to the AFL-CIO Hall and Unruly Brewing.

Except for a little drizzle, the rain held off long enough for children and parents alike to beep loud horns, make sirens sound, sit in a tall army vehicle, explore control panels, and climb around on the Watch Muskegon caravan.


Roosevelt Park Day remains family-friendly

Roosevelt Park Day took place Sept. 7 with the expected wealth of kid-friendly activities. A pancake breakfast kicks it off, folowed by the parade. Then the community center fills with games, arts and crafts, and entertainment by  Mona Shores Fiddlers, Country Current and Yard Sale Underwear. There is also a beer tent for the adults.

New this year was a candy cannon brought by Lewis Farms.
