There’s been a flurry of activity in downtown Cedar Springs since the Cedar Springs Area Chamber of Commerce’s Community Summer Celebrations event kicked off last Saturday, June 15, with sidewalk sales, a Red Flannel dunk tank and yard games, the annual Rotary cow plop, and more. Sunday there was worship in the Heart of Cedar Springs, and Monday was super busy with the kickoff of the Cedar Springs Library summer reading program and all of its individual events, and City Impact Community Dinner. Tuesday was the first of two family fun nights in the heart of Cedar Springs, with a group of princesses, bounce houses and food trucks, and Wednesday was the second night, with music and food trucks.

“We had an awesome time at the CSACoC Family Fun Nights,” said Perry Hopkins, of the Chamber. “Thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors for making the event happen.”
