Party in the Park!

Jul 13, 2011

6 West Michigan locations

30,000+ children and families

2 hours packed with fun activities and free food

Amway has again partnered with WOODTV8, its local NBC affiliate, and Maranda to provide six highly anticipated park parties, known for packing lots of food and fun in two hour blasts.

Each party offers kids under the age of 18 a lunch from the Michigan Department of Education and area public schools, as well as fun and educational activities provided by local nonprofit groups.


You can find children making arts and crafts, getting their faces painted, and joining a new project through the Amway One by One Art Area. Here, kids will work with artist Corey Van Duienen to create cool art that will be part of his 2011 ArtPrize entry.

The piece is called “The Child Shall Lead Them” and will be displayed in front of the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum.

There are still a few parties left in West Michigan. Join us from 12:00-2:00 pm at these locations:

  • July 14, Kollen Park, Holland
  • July 21, Upjohn Park, Kalamazoo
  • July 28, Allegan County Fairgrounds, Allegan
