Generating opportunities to promote business and create a destination!
Things To Do
Reminiscent of Harvest Festivals of the past, Fall Fest celebrates local businesses, community organizations, and family. A dunk tank with local celebrities, chili cook-off, carnival games, pumpkin carving, hayrides, horse pulls and more provide fun for all ages! Held downtown at Riverside Park on Saturday, September 22.
Get your Halloween kicks on Route 66! Local merchants provide candy stops and treats along Main Street, while Grace Church hosts Trunk or Treat in the Hastings City Bank lot with wonderful costume themes and decorations. Stop by Putnam District Library for the annual book giveaway and photo booth! Watch facebook for date and times.
Vision For Growth
Located along M-66, running north and south through West Michigan, we invite you to stop for a visit. We strive to live up to our promise of being “a friendly destination” and encourage you to shop, dine, play, and perhaps choose to live here.
Utilize the Paul Henry Thornapple Trail, kayak the Thornapple River, enjoy Putnam Park, Riverside Park, or Central Park, the petting zoo at MOO-Ville Creamery, our historic Putnam District Library, and much more.
Through partnerships with the Barry County Chamber of Commerce, the Barry County Economic Development Alliance, and the Barry Community Foundation we also seek to grow our local economy…come and grow with us!
