The Mecosta County Area Chamber of Commerce had their monthly Rise and Shine in Paris this month. Paris, Mi of course. What a great way to start the day mixing with other area business owners and their employees. The Rise and Shine Events along with Business After Hours are just a couple of the great advantages to being a member of the Chamber.
This Month the Rise and Shine was held at the Paris County Parks old Fish Hatchery. Paris Park features a 20' Eiffle Tower, An 8' Wooden Indian, Camp in cabins, a canoe launch and a fishing concession along the banks of the Muskegon River. The park also has the White Pine Trail State Park running through it. The trail offers park users the activities of bicycling, hiking, snowmobiling and other uses throughout the year. Nice picnic areas and a picnic shelter are also available.
Paris Park is the site of many activities throughout the year but Springtime in Paris offers the most activities. The Art exhibits are definitely worth sneaking a peak at, along with the arts and crafts sales, but there is also a celebration of music with a wide variety of tastes and cultures in mind. Free dance, folk songs, strolling musicians, clowns, international folk dance and even can-can dancers are all there celebrating each Father's Day weekend. A Father's Day breakfast and non-denominational church service are part of the events on Sunday. This festival offers lots of fun and activities for the entire family. If you have never been to the Paris Park, stop whatever you are doing and put this on your "Must Do" list.
