What comes after Grand Haven’s Winterfest? Spring Lake’s Snow Jam!

(1) Snow Jam — Friday and Saturday nights. The seventh annual Spring Lake Rotary-sponsored family-friendly festival begins with euchre and cornhole tournaments at the Elks lodge in downtown Grand Haven. Registration is at 6 p.m. and play begins at 7 p.m. Lots will be going on Saturday evening at Spring Lake’s Central Park: entertainment and beer tent, Grand Haven vs. Spring Lake alumni hockey game, dart tournament, sledding and ice skating. Admission is free. All of the proceeds from sales and entry fees go to support Rotary’s many local and global projects. For a full list of events, visit rotarysnowjam.com.

(2) Frozen in Time — 2-4 p.m. Saturday in downtown Grand Haven. Pick up your scorecard at the many participating Grand Haven Main Street businesses, who will have live mannequins in their windows posing as super heroes. Stroll the snow-free sidewalks and vote for your favorite window while matching the scenes with the stores. Correctly match all scenes and enter a drawing for cash and prizes at the awards ceremony, which immediately follows the event at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, 200 Washington Ave.

(3) Albert Lee concerts — 8 p.m. Friday and 7 p.m. Sunday at Seven Steps Up, 116 S. Jackson St., Spring Lake. Some call Lee “the greatest guitarist in the world.” Tickets start at $25.

(4) Fortnight Singers concert — 2-3 p.m. Sunday at Loutit District Library, 407 Columbus Ave., Grand Haven. Enjoy Medieval and Renaissance music at this free concert in the library’s upper-level lobby. The Fortnight Singers present a program of madrigals, motets, drinking songs, dances and chansons — both secular and sacred. The performance is suitable for all ages. There may even be dancing!

(5) WGHN Home, Garden & Health Expo — 3-7 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Grand Haven Community Center, 421 Columbus Ave. The local radio station’s 11th annual event will feature local and state vendors ready to help you in your landscape, home improvement and health needs.
