(WZZM)- Get out and enjoy the fabulous weather this weekend with one of these summertime events.
The Summer Craft Beer Festival is taking over John Ball Park Saturday. There, more then 20 breweries will be offering samples of their specialty brews. The breweries are primarily based in Michigan, but there are a handful from the west and east coasts.
Day-of tickets cost $35, and get you 15 tickets for sampling. That's four times the amount since last year.
WZZM's Weather Ball Red Ale is making a comeback at the event. WZZM 13 teamed up with Mitten Brewing company for the Coast West Music Festival to make the specialty brew. It's a red amber ale, made with caramel hops and makes for the perfect summertime beer.
The Summer Craft Beer Fest opens its gates at noon, and closes at 7. It's all going on at John Ball Park, located at 1300 W. Fulton Street in Grand Rapids.
The Jenison Street Dance is fun for the whole family. It's a free event organizer to foster community relationships, and promote the Jenison Business District.
Starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday, instructors will guide you in polka dancing, swing dancing, line-dancing and so much more.
Branns, Culver's, and Jets Pizza are just a few food options at the event. There will also be a beer tent for those 21 years old and older.
The fun starts at 1 and runs through 9 p.m.
The GRandJazzFest is hitting Downtown Grand Rapids for the second time, and it's going to be bigger and better than ever.
The free jazz festival is the first of its kind in West Michigan and offers a wide variety of performers. Well-known Chicago-based musician Nick Colionne is the headliner, but there are other up and coming artists taking the stage.
