Creative Arts Festival

While Grand Rapids is having their Art Festival we in Otsego are having our annual Creative Arts Festival tomorrow beginning at 9am.

The 31st annual Creative Arts Festival will be held on September 22, 2018. There will be parade, arts and craft show, farmers market, business vendors, entertainment, amazing classic car show, motorcycle show, contests, food, and tractors show. Kids will enjoy free games, bounce houses, petting zoo and a lot of other activities. Hours: 9am-4pm

My step-daughter will have a booth selling her paintings along with many other people who will be selling crafts and goods along both sides of the street on the side walks.  Other crafts people are set up inside and outside the Church of God.  The car show is big, vehicles are parked along both sides of four blocks of the downtown area.  M89 through the downtown area will be closed off and detours are set up.

I will be there in the afternoon with my wife if you want to say hi.  I will be wearing my cowboy hat and Skywarn shirt (and long beard and mustache which rivals Bills).  Hope to see you there!


As of 8am this morning we have had .27 of an inch of rain and the winds have really picked up.  Storm movement is 50mph heading northeast – we could see some localized gusts to 40mph and scattered power outages.  We will see our temperatures hold steady then drop throughout the day as a cold front moves through then dry weather move in for the weekend with comfortable temperatures.

It is chilly out there tonight. I got my fleece jacket out. LOL!! and it was 90 yesterday. Crazy! I heard on the news a year ago today it was 95 degrees. Well it has been a wonderful hot summer but I am more than ready for a nice long Fall. It is one of my favorite seasons. I like Spring too because by that time I as so ready to see all the flowers. 🙂

I am with you there! Nice long Fall lasting till mid or late December sounds awesome! 5 months of this heat and humidity has just worn me out and emptied my wallet from the AC expense. And then a nice early Spring that starts about late January!

I hear you on the AC expense. Our electric bill has never been so high. Lights are LED and we only have 2 on. I have tried not having the air on but really when it’s hot and humid I don’t want that in the house too. Enjoy the cool weekend ahead.

Ridiculous getting up at 430 today and the temp was 81!! Almost feel sorry for those who said they took out or shut down their AC, must have felt very refreshing last night. 108 at work here this morning. Yuck!
