  1. Glen Arbor Bed Parade

    Comments Off on Glen Arbor Bed Parade

    In its third year, the quirky “Glen Arbor Bed Parade” brings another fun thing to Glen Arbor for Thanksgiving weekend. Join the new Black Friday tradition, sponsored by Becky Thatcher Designs. Open to anyone and everyone to cheer from the curb or roll down Western Avenue.

    Want to participate?

    Haul that creatively decorated bed on wheels to Sylvan Inn’s parking at 9:00 Friday and join the parade. Your support team to push would be good, too. Event begins at 9am and ends by 9:30am at Art’s Tavern.

      

    Prior to the parade, some wake up early dressed festive and cozy to shop the deals of the year during the Glen Arbor PJ Party from 6:30-9am. Following the Bed Parade, many plan to dine at local eateries in and around Glen Arbor.

    Author Heather Shumaker will join us for Story time and Craft on Wednesday, Aug 7 from 11am-11:45am. Heather will read from her book The Griffins of Castle Cary, followed by book signing and a craft. 

    Siblings Meg, Will, and Ariel Griffin are off on an adventure! They can’t wait to spend a week visiting their eccentric aunt and her giant, tongue-drooling Newfoundland dog in England. But when they finally arrive, they’re faced with a few local secrets that stir up more than a little trouble.

    Add in some very peculiar lights, strange new friends, a police chase and some stampeding sheep, and the Griffin kids are in over their heads—literally. Apparently this town has a ghost problem and the three children must race to solve the mystery before the ghosts take something that doesn’t belong to them.
    (Ages 8 and up

    Heather Shumaker grew up always wanting to be an author. She began writing books in elementary school and is now an award-winning author of several books for adults ( It’s OK Not to Share, It’s OK to Go Up the Slide and Saving Arcadia). Heather has tried many jobs including sailing on tall ships, leading llama treks, and recycling at the South Pole, Antarctica, but she likes writing best.

    Three friends embark upon a hero’s journey, questing for a distant treasure. The way is arduous and fraught with peril, yet the trio boldly presses on. Much to their relief, help comes along when they least expect it-a guiding bright light, help from a thoughtful stranger, fellowship in a broken village. But is the kindness of strangers enough to help the three friends survive vicious storms, fend off fire breathing monsters, and conquer their own fears?  (Ages 5 and up)
