How to transport 40,000 bottles of water

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Planning is under way for the biggest parties of the summer! Maranda Park Parties return for the 20th birthday on Thursday, June 26. We spent a day traveling to Ice Mountain to pick up a generous donation of bottled water for all five of the Park Parties!

So what does it take to transport 15,573 pounds of bottled water? A heavy duty Ryder truck, a couple of fork lifts, and a lot of help from the folks at Ice Mountain and Kent Intermediate School District.
