Grand Rapids providing residents with options
November 24, 2011 by Mark
The community of Grand Rapids has an entire month’s worth of celebrations to look forward to. Though there are various events taking place from the beginning to the end of December, there are a few notable events worth keeping an eye on.
As a starting point, Quadna Mountain Park will be the site of the ISOC Minnesota Regional Snowmobile Race from December 3rd to December 4th, 2011. While racing will be taking place at 9:00 a.m. for the duration of the event, there will be other activities taking place such as tubing, barbeques, bonfires, a party, and a chance to ride with Santa. With full weekend passes going at $25 and young children being able to get in free, the races might be worth marking down on the calendar.
For those who are more interested in free events, the Minnesota Discover Center in Chisholm will be hosting a Jay Holland & Bittersweet concert on December 8th, 2011. If warming up and listening to live music sounds like a fun evening, then the Acoustic Café is something to watch for. With all the flyer printing, posters, and public support behind the Holiday Lights Display, it would be surprising if Grand Rapids residents weren’t aware of it. Though the ceremony is taking place from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. there will be plenty of time for those present to enjoy the free food that will be provided. Although the Holiday Lights Display is free, children will be entitled to the snacks first.
This year at least, Grand Rapids residents can have the final say when it comes to holiday festivities.
