GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — With Gilda's Laughfest getting ready to kick off, event organizers are announcing the 2023 Seriously Funny Adventure Challenge is returning to Grand Rapids bigger than ever.

The challenges now extend into all three of the city's wards as well as downtown, sending families on a race across the city.

“We’re excited to bring back the Seriously Funny Adventure Challenge as one of our favorite family-oriented events during LaughFest,” said Gilda's Club Grand Rapids President Wendy Wigger. “With new expanded locations throughout Grand Rapids, families will get to explore various retailers, restaurants and landmarks in different parts of the city.”
