LaughFest officially kicks off this weekend. It is also opening weekend for the John Ball Zoo. We also have the Women’s Expo, KISS, Fish Fries, Hockey, Pirates, and a free day at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. Also, remember to turn your clocks AHEAD one hour this weekend.
As if there aren't enough reasons to love Johnny Depp, he's given us one more: on Tuesday, Captain Jack Sparrow himself made a surprise visit to Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in Australia to visit some of the patients.
