Holiday Inn Spring Lake and Jack’s Restaurant jumped on board to participate in this years Grand Haven Artwalk! What better way to get involved then sponsor the kick off party which took place in Central Park Wednesday, September 19, 2012. The Mayor, City Manger, City Council and Community Foundation Members along with the General Manager of Holiday Inn, April Schmidt, boarded the Harbor Transit ArtWalk Bus riding around central park where they were released for the opening ceremony. The ArfWalk Dog creator, crafted an ArfWalk Dog City Bench to be painted by attendees. After everyone was thanked for attending the line began for a variety of Jack’s Restaurant’s tea sandwiches, wraps, pasta salad, chips and beverages. Classic tunes were provided by the duo of Jack Leaver and Dave Stanton, area locals who can be found playing at venues such as Old Boys, and the Highway.
