_BUS-#10-11-Old-Postcard-Cedar-springs07The Cedar Springs Area Chamber of Commerce will be holding a Founders Day Weekend celebration March 16-18 to commemorate the incorporation of Cedar Springs as a village on March 18, 1871.

From 3 to 9 p.m., there will be a concert and BBQ, featuring three different area bands. The concert tent will be located on Ash Street, across from city hall, so no worries about weather! Admission to the concert is free for all ages. Food will be available for purchase, with The Grilling Company and Salidino Smoke there grilling delicious meat.

    I hope this turns into an every year type of thing. Perhaps it could grow to the red flannel day of the Spring.
