Spring Lake's Snow Jam is like a five-hour Winterfest, the Ski Bowl is hosting an adults-only fundraiser and the Spring Lake library's fireplace will be the backdrop for some cool jazz.

(1) Spring Lake Rotary Snow Jam — 4–9 p.m. Saturday at Central Park in Spring Lake. Think of it as a mini Winterfest! The activities include open skating and a dart tournament at 4 p.m., live music by The Knickknacks at 5, the Spring Lake vs. Grand Haven alumni hockey match at 6, live music by Thirst Perch at 7, and open skating resumes at 7:30. Plus, there's a heated beer tent. Admission is free. For details, visit rotarysnowjam.com.

(2) Banners, Bowls and Brews — 7 p.m. to midnight Saturday at Mulligan's Hollow Ski Bowl. This fundraiser for the Ski Bowl operations is for adults: You must be age 21 or older to have fun here. Your donation at the door gets you a lift ticket for skiing and boarding from 7-9 p.m., a selection of soups and breads, live music, silent auction, and a cash bar.

(3) Save Sheldon's Hips — 3-6 p.m. Sunday at the Eagles club, 20 N. Second St. in downtown Grand Haven. All proceeds from the spaghetti dinner, auction and raffle will go to help Sheldon, a 15-month-old golden retriever that needs expensive double-hip replacement surgery. His rescue owner, Amy Bilicki, is working with Grand Haven Animal Hospital and Puppy Breath Rescue to raise the money to help Sheldon. Dinner is $8 a plate; kids age 5 and younger eat free.

(4) Jim Cooper Jazz Trio — 3-4 p.m. Sunday at Spring Lake District Library, 123 E. Exchange St. This is part of the library's free Music by the Fireplace series. Classic jazz will be performed by vibraphonist Jim Cooper, bassist Joe Oprea and percussionist Mike VanLente by the warm fire.

(5) "A Midsummer Night's Dream" — 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 3 p.m. Sunday at Muskegon Community College's Overbrook Theater, 221 S. Quarterline Road, Muskegon. Shakespeare's lighthearted comedy of love, magic and mayhem will help you belatedly celebrate Valentine’s Day. Tickets are $10; $5 for MCC students.
