Free ice cream. Free face painting. Lots of free candy. A petting zoo. Firetrucks. Policemen. And plumes of dust swirling in the air when the AeroMed helicopter landed! Residents got all of that and much more when they attended the 24th annual Cedar Springs Community Night, last Thursday, April 15, at Cedar Springs High School.
Brace said that 123 vendors rented tables this year, and they had quite a few new businesses. Businesses and non-profits filled the gymnasium and the hallway, and there were some events outside, too, including the petting zoo, which was new.
Brace estimated about 1,200 people attended. “We got 800 food tickets, but not everyone eats,” she said.
The only thing that didn’t go well was the food drive. “We got very few cans,” she said.
Brace said they are looking forward to planning for next year—their 25th event.
