Maranda Park Parties have become a beloved tradition in West Michigan. This season marks the 23rd consecutive year that Maranda will bring great entertainment, a huge variety of attractions, community resources from local nonprofits, and a ton of prizes to local communities in West Michigan.
Kids can expect both free ice cream sandwiches from our friends at Country Fresh, who stopped by the studio, along with friends from GR First who will be stopping by with stylists offering free haircuts.
Part of tomorrow’s entertainment is also the Hastings Drum Line marching band. Maranda even had the chance to meet all of the players!
YOU also have a chance to give back! Donate gently used clothing to Bethany Christian services to give back to families in need. Learn more in the video above.
Once again, in working with USDA, Michigan Dept. of Ed and local school districts, free lunch will be served to anyone 18 and under starting at 11:30 a.m., while supplies last. Maranda’s Park Parties have been recognized by the USDA as one of the nation’s largest summer feeding programs.
Park Parties run from noon-2 pm at the dates listed above. Every Park Party also includes free activities, games, entertainment and, of course, prizes! We invite you and your community to join us for a great celebration all summer long.
See you there!
