Snow Days Hit Downtown GR February 10-14

Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. and partners will host a full slate of winter activities at the 1st annual Snow Days festival kicking off February 10, 2017.

The 5-day festival is designed to take advantage of Michigan's cold climate, provide fun ways for people to get outside and enjoy the season, and help make Grand Rapids a better winter city, which makes Grand Rapids a better year-around city.

Snow Days comprises three distinct free- and low-cost events that each feature a wide variety of activities for both families and adults:

Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. organizes Snow Days in partnership with dozens of community partners, local businesses and sponsors, including Ice Brigade, AGA Nation, AHC+ Hospitality, Craig's Cruisers, the Grand Rapids Public Museum, WOOD TV 8 and the City of Grand Rapids.

#SnowDaysGR is the official social media hash tag for the events.
