Grand Haven Hispanic Heritage Fiesta
Grand Haven, various locations
This fun-filled, weeklong event is put on by the Tri-Cities Puentes Initiative. “Puentes” is Spanish for “bridges,” and the initiative’s focus is on building those connections between the Hispanic residents of Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Ferrysburg. Now in its third year, the fiesta increases awareness and cultural understanding of the diverse Hispanic community. It highlights a variety of Latin American cultures and pays tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced the nation and particularly, the Tri-Cities area. The event will include an opening ceremony, a restaurant week, an “Origenes” dinner at the community center and a Fiesta concert at the Waterfront Stadium. It will host a finale party on Saturday, Sept. 25.
