Top 5 things to do this weekend

Flowers, beach vaulting and star gazing are on the docket for this mid-summer weekend.

(1) Tri-Cities Flower Show — 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Spring Lake District Library, 123 E. Exchange St. The Tri-Cities Garden Club’s 61st annual show has a “Vintage Treasures” theme. Botanical arts and photography will also be components of the show. The educational exhibit, “Wabi Sabi,” will feature “nature’s wonders in the garden,” and “Victory Gardens” will feature “historical and current gardens.” Admission is free.

(2) Grand Haven Beach Vault — all day Friday and Saturday at the Grand Haven State Park beach. This is called “a carnival of vaulting.” Since there is a slim chance that you’ll be competing (I know I won’t), may I suggest you grab a beach chair and enjoy the competition.

(3) Star Gazing — 9-11 p.m. Saturday at Hemlock Crossing, 8115 W. Olive Road, West Olive. Join the Shoreline Amateur Astronomical Association for a free night of star gazing. The next scheduled night is Aug. 11. Nearby, the county parks system is hosting an open house at the Weaver House at the Pine Bend county park, 15400 Polk St., from 1-3 p.m. Sunday.

(4) Worship on the Waterfront — 7-8:30 p.m. Sunday at the Lynne Sherwood Waterfront Stadium, Grand Haven. Gates open at 6:15 p.m. New World Son is in concert this week. Admission is free; a free-will offering will be taken. In the event of rain, the concert will take place at Harvest Bible Chapel, Spring Lake.

(5) “An Iliad” — 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the John and Dede Howard Recital Hall, 221 Columbia Ave., Holland. Tickets are $15 to $30 for this Hope Summer Repertory Theatre production.
