Mark Brooky • Jun 22, 2017 at 12:00 PM

(1) Grand Haven Art Festival — 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in downtown Grand Haven. The festival transforms Washington Avenue into a high-class, outdoor art gallery.

(2) Tri-Cities Garden Walk — 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at seven Grand Haven-area gardens. There will also be a plant sale and raffle. Admission is $10; free for ages 12 and younger. It is the Tri-Cities Garden Club’s 23rd annual fundraising walk. Details at www.tricitiesgardenclub.org or see the Tribune story.

(3) Worship on the Waterfront — 7-8:30 p.m. Sunday at Grand Haven’s Waterfront Stadium. Jake Hamilton kicks off this free outdoor summer worship season, sponsored by the First Reformed Church of Grand Haven. W.O.W. blends the music and passion of worship with the beauty of God’s creation.

(4) Dinner/Movie Night — Friday night at The Momentum Center for Social Justice, 714 Columbus Ave., Grand Haven. It starts with a 6 p.m. potluck, followed by a 7 p.m. movie. You’re encouraged to bring a dish to pass. The featured movie from Academy Award-winning director Roger Ross Williams, “Life, Animated,” is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young man who was unable to speak as a child until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate by immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films.

Look for photos from the event as the Tribune’s Gallery of the Week, which goes up Monday night.
