City reluctant to suspend social district during Coast Guard Festival | Local News


Grand Haven City Council members have expressed reluctance to suspend the downtown social district during the Coast Guard Festival this summer.

During a Grand Haven City Council business session earlier this month, Coast Guard festival organizers asked the city to suspend its downtown social district during this year’s festival, which runs from July 29 to August 7. No action was taken that evening.

After much discussion at Monday’s meeting, City Council decided to approve an amended motion which will then be put to a vote. If approved, the festival’s plans would not include the suspension of alcohol consumption in the city centre.
