2010 Sizzlin’ Summer Concerts on the Lowell Michigan Showboat

Lowell is a pretty little city on the Flat River just east of Ada &

Grand Rapids.  In fact, it takes us about fifteen minutes to drive there,

which we do quite often.

Lowell ShowBoat Sizzlin’ Summer  Concert Series 2010

Thursday night this summer, there is a FREE CONCERT from 7 to 9pm

at the Riverwalk in Lowell on the Showboat stage.  The concerts are

wheelchair accessible, free parking, there is bleacher seating or bring

your own chair.

The Flat River Grill is offering food and a cash bar, as well as other

vendors  along the Riverwalk plaza.

NOTE: Construction on the Flat River Bridge in the center of Lowell will

complicate parking and traffic as it only goes one way – east – at this point.

The detour takes you out to Grand River Drive and then back to M 42 on

the return trip west to Grand Rapids.
