GR Bridge Walk, Labor Day

The walk will be slightly different this year: instead of starting at 8 a.m., the walk will start at 10 a.m. Monday on the Gillett Bridge.

Part of the river walk on the west side of the Grand River is closed for construction, so the route will detour on Scribner Avenue and then cross on the Sixth Street bridge.

The end of the walk will stop just south of the Gillett Bridge at Ah-Nab-Awen Park, where the West Michigan Labor Fest starts at 11 a.m. with food, rides and games.
