(WZZM)- Food, furry friends, and the funnies. We've got you covered this weekend with these great events.
Try some gluten-free products at the DeltaPlex Arena this Saturday, made locally and nationally.
The Gluten Free Food Fair is going on from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the DeltaPlex, located at 2500 Turner Ave NW in Grand Rapids.
There, you will be able to sample the latest and tastiest products for the gluten-intolerant (and friends). Celiac Disease is a genetic disorder that affects 1 in 133 Americans.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about the disease.
The Allies for Greyhounds of West Michigan is hosting their annual Spring Fling this weekend. The group works to rescue retired racing greyhounds, and in their six years, the group has rescued over 600 dogs.
Allies for Greyhounds arranges meetings for adoption. There is an application process involved, but once you get through that, Allies will bring two to three dogs to your home to make sure you find the perfect fit.
Just over $200 will get you a furry friend, who will be up to date with its shots, three months worth of heart worm medication, and a leash and collar.
At the Spring Fling, you can find out more about adoption and greyhounds in general.
That's going on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1637 3 Mile Road in Grand Rapids. There will be plenty of greyhounds on site as well.
For more information on the Allies for Greyhounds of West Michigan, please visit the group's website.
And don't miss the Pop Scholars Saturday night at Wealthy Theatre. They're a local improv comedy group, providing long and short form improv Saturday.
The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $7 to the general public, $5 for Wealthy Theatre members.
You can expect a lot of audience interaction, and just a lot of fun!
