Good Times in Goodrich coming up Saturday



GOODRICH — The Goodrich Festivals & Events organization is putting the final touches on the Good Times in Goodrich festival, which will return to Goodrich Commons Park on Saturday, Aug. 7.

The parade is set to begin at 10:30 a.m. when the larger parade entries will begin the procession from Goodrich High School. The parade proceeds east on Hegel Road. Smaller units will join the lineup at Shuman Drive, so spectators will get the most out of the parade if they set up between Shuman Drive and Clarence Street. The parade will end at the park on Clarence Street.

More than 240 antique, classic and special interest vehicles will be on display at the Cruise To Goodrich, one of mid-Michigan’s largest classic car shows.

The kids will have the chance to burn off some energy in the Kid Zone, which will feature bouncy castles, putt-putt golf, face painting, music and more. The cost for an all-day pass to the Kid Zone is $5.

Local crafters, artisans and merchants will be set up from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the craft/vendor tent, and there will be food trucks, a 50/50 raffle and door prizes.

A cornhole tournament with $1,000 in prize money also is planned. Registration opens at 1 p.m. and bags fly at 1:30 p.m.

The entertainment tent will have music with an ‘80s flair beginning at 3 p.m. The headliner, Square Pegz, will take the stage at 9 p.m., and the music continues until 12:30 a.m. A limited number of tickets are available for the entertainment tent. Tickets cost $5 online at goodrichfestival.com/events-forms/.

The festival is the primary fundraiser for Goodrich Festivals & Events, a community-based, nonprofit organization that supports local families in need, scholarships, school booster clubs and village beautification.
