Grand Ledge Things to Do

  • by Klrambo Written Mar 30, 2009

    This annual event celebrates Grand Ledge's history in Victorian times as one of the first towns to visit on the Summer circuit. It features each year a non-motorized parade at noon; a Teddy Bear Tea and Maypole Dance especially for the youngsters; a High Tea with costume showing, a Victorian Funeral Symposium; kite flying; artisans and craftspeople; Civil War encampments and demonstrations. In 2009 additional features will be a Vintage Base Ball game; and an Edison Film showing and a visit from Queen Victoria!

    It is really worth a visit!

    Toward the end of my hike, I was able to get some nice sunset shots. But, before that, I observe the spring like exhuberance of a boy and his sister bidding goodbye to family or close friends. As the car exited down the gravel driveway, the boy, a ten year old, barefoot and shirtless, raced alongside in the grass with uninhibited joy. His younger sister bounced just behind him in excitement. "What was that I said that made you laugh?", the boy exclaimed. As the family car passed me, the father winked and waved a smile toward me. The straightforward hospitality of that boy and girl filled the spring air with good vibes.

    Rural Michigan roads are often paved only the roadbase, a rare thing in my home state of California where asphalt is pressed into service in nearly any rural road. Eaton Highway was a surprisingly busy thoroughfare, but along the way I saw some handsome estates. Old farm houses are often prized and renovated nicely, while newly constructed homes sometimes mimic, sometimes mask, tradition.

Grand Ledge Off The Beaten Path

    The river park. Right by the bridge that runs through the middle of the old part of town there is a river park. A bridge goes across to an island and the kids can feed the ducks and geese. In the summer there's also a steamboat that you can take rides on.
