There are so many wonderful things happening throughout the summer in Grand Rapids, OH! Among our favorite events is The Rhythm on the River Concert Series. Every show is a different genre so you are certain to find at least one performance (if not all of them) that is sure to please.
At The Grand Kerr House, we love starting Concert Sunday with a leisurely breakfast on the front porch (Bob makes the best omelettes!), walking into town afterwards to do a little window shopping (OK, sometimes I do a lot of real shopping), grabbing a late lunch at one of the many fine Grand Rapids restaurants, meandering along the towpath (with the beautiful river views), then grabbing our chairs and settling in for the show. What a perfect Summer Sunday!
The event is held by the Wright Pavilion on the towpath along the Maumee River. Concerts begin at 4:00 p.m. and are FREE and open to the public. Be sure to bring a chair or blanket, maybe even a picnic snack, then relax and enjoy the show.
In the event of inclement weather, events are moved to the Old Fire Station on Main Street.
