The Cedar Springs Public Library held a super celebration Wednesday in Morley Park that was worthy of the super heroes they’ve been celebrating all summer long.

More than 700 people attended the finale to this summer’s reading program. “It was an awesome turn out,” said Library Director Donna Clark.

The celebration featured an expo by our local super heroes in the Kent County Sheriff Department, who brought in the mobile command center, boat, mounted unit, a motorcycle, a car, a tank, a remote-controlled robot, and other tactical items. They also had a raffle for four bikes. The expo was a big hit with both parents and kids.

Another set of local super heroes were on hand from the Cedar Springs Fire Department to cool kids off with the fire hose. They have been part of the event for many years and kids always look forward to a chance to get doused.

Kids also had a riot playing games, tackling the obstacle course, jumping in the bounce houses, slippin’ and slidin’ on the water slide, getting their face painted, munching on popcorn, grooving to the music, and cooling off with ice cream and ice water.

The kids who won prizes also picked them up at the event.

“We couldn’t have done this without all our sponsors and volunteers,” said Clark.
