July 19th & 20th, 2013
The Glowing for Grand Haven event is established in partnership with the Grand Haven Lighthouse Conservancy Group and will be held as the Grand Haven Spring Lake Waterfront Holiday Inn Signature Event, to reoccur annually. The event will incur proceeds positioned towards the restoration of the Grand Haven Lighthouse and Foghouse. The event will cohesively unite locals and tourists, strengthen community outlook, while creating an annual signature event for the Spring Lake Holiday Inn and establishing an ever growing fund for long term management and upkeep of the Grand Haven Lighthouse.
