Harbor Drive

City officials promised last week that Grand Haven's Harbor Drive will be open to traffic as
early as today and true to their word it's now clean and green along the reconstructed stretch
between Columbus and Franklin avenues. For the first time since heavy equipment began
digging in during the third week of August there's not a barricade or orange barrel to be found
along the downtown waterfront

Arts & Craft Show

This will be a weekend packed with plenty of Holiday shopping opportunities around and near
the newly reconstructed Harbor Drive in downtown Grand Haven. The 45th annual Christmas
Arts and Crafts show runs today and tomorrow up Columbus at the Grand Haven Community
Center while tomorrow the Winter market at the depot opens again at Harbor and Washington

December 7th

Tri-Cities community members are expected to gather in observance today and share the story
which prompted then President Franklin D. Roosevelt to proclaim in part, “December 7, 1941 –
a date which will live in infamy.” Today Americans will mark the 77th anniversary of the
Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii - now known as National Pearl Harbor
Remembrance Day.
