Grand Rapids Tree Lighting and opening of Rosa Parks Circle

Grand Rapids had their tree lighting December 4 which also marked the opening of the Rosa Parks Ice Skating Rink for the season. It was a little cold but a nice family event in downtown Grand Rapids. Downtown was bustling with the tree lighting and the Grand Rapids Griffins hockey game. More on Rosa Parks Ice Skating, it is free to skate and only $1 for skate rentals. The tree is located next to the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM). For those of that do not know, the GRAM offers $5 admission for non members on Friday nights.

What's for dinner?

For those who are not familiar, this was the first year for Art Prize and it basically was an open art competition where the winner was voted on by the public. It was billed as offering the World's Largest Art Prize with total prizes of $449,000.00 with the winner getting $250,000.00. Needless to say there were some interesting entrants - 1,262 to be exact. It brought as electric feeling to downtown Grand Rapids. There were 100,000 multi-colored airplanes thrown off downtown buildings and a giant 1,200 pound moose made out of 60,000 nails. One of our favorites (and it is still up) is the large table and chairs sitting above the Grand River. It is pretty amusing and is located right by the Grand Rapids Public Museum. Enjoy the pics.
