First Ever “Back to School Kid Parade!”West Side leaders make big plansGrand Rapids---The upper west side of Grand Rapids will be filled with colorful bikes and banners Saturday, September 11 as a group of people with deep ties to the community host the first ever Kid Parade to celebrate being Back to School.

He enlisted City Commissioner Dave Shaffer and School Board Member Jon O?Connor to help assemble a group to make the event a reality.The Kid Parade will begin at 11am sharp. The parade starts at Westend Street, one block west of Covell Road, and will proceed west on Leonard to the Elk?s Lodge 48 (Highlands Golf Course). Once there the group will offer a brief ceremony to commemorate the lives and sacrifices of Fire and Police professionals on the anniversary date of the 9-11 attacks in New York City.
