Coast Guard Festival asks the city to suspend the social district | Local News


The Grand Haven Coastguard Festival doesn’t take place until July, but planning for the event is already underway and the festival’s executive director provided an update to Grand Haven City Council on Monday.

Mike Smith said it was the first he had ever presented to the council on the upcoming festival. It may have something to do with the changes they are planning for this year’s event.
