Sixth Annual ArtPrize Fur Meet

It’s that time of year- ArtPrize! Once again we will be walking through downtown Grand Rapids to check out the artwork as well as mingle with the visitors (who probably don’t see giant walking stuffed animals on the street every day).

Accommodations are available for out-of-town guests at a cost of $50 per person. We will also make a food stop midway through the meet, so be sure to have money for that as well.

We will be meeting at the picnic shelter in front of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum on both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday we’ll meet at 10 am and start walking at 11 am, while on Sunday we’ll meet at 11 am and start walking at 11:30 am.

Fursuiting is highly encouraged, though it may be subject to weather conditions. Ears, tails, badge and other furry gear are also encouraged.

Byron Rec’s first annual comic con is coming in 2016! Mark your calendars for this great little local event!

The Byron Township Parks & Recreation Department is excited to announce the first annual Byron Rec Comic Con on Saturday, February 6, 2016. This event is starting small, but we hope for it to be a great family-friendly event for years to come! Held at the Byron Township Community Center, this FREE event is open to everyone to attend.

With other events like our Women’s Expo & Craft Show in the spring, we know we already have the potential here for a great event. We have a great community here in South Kent, and we know this will be a fun day. We also have kids’ activities planned from 12-3pm, and a kids’ cosplay contest starting at 3pm. We highly encourage all of our attendees to come in costume or come as they are.

Vendors will feature artwork, crafts, collectibles, gaming, comics, and more! Many vendors are from Byron Center, Grand Rapids, and surrounding communities. Concessions are also available.

The show time is 10am-4pm on Saturday, February 6. The event is free to attend and convenient parking is located in the Community Center parking lot. The vendors will be set up on the first level; signs will be placed to guide visitors inside of the Community Center.
