I find it interesting that the dates are a Fri & Sat only for this show. I have never been to a full day show on a Fri. Can the crowds be good on a day where most are probably working?

I have participated in this show for several years during the leadership transitions. It was originally a 3 day show, but has been changed to a 2 day show for about 3 years. The Friday crowd is great, as well as for Saturday.  The volunteer staff is amazing! The show is very well run, and I am always happy to be invited back.

Thanks for weighing in, Betsy. Muskegon is a bustling place on these dates but I didn't have much info on the event itself.

Thanks Betsy and Connie for replying to this. It is good to know that Fri is a good turnout... :)
