  1. There's a lot going for Tulip Time this week.

Among the events is the Volksparade, from 2pm to 3pm on May 11.

Thousands of spectators are expected to line the streets of downtown Holland for the festival's popular parades, which take place on May 12 and May 14.

Governor Snyder will be delivering the keynote address at this year's festival luncheon on May 11.

It will be his 6th appearance at the event.

 

2. The Grand Rapids Griffins are still alive after a thrilling come from behind victory last night, forcing a fifth game.

The Griffins were down three games to zero in their series with the Lake Erie Monsters.

They were down 4 to 1 as the second period was winding down.

In the final 21 minutes of the game, the Griffins rallied and ended up scoring four unanswered goals, winning game four with a final score of 5 to 4.

Game five is set for Saturday on the road.

The Griffins still need to win, or they are done.

 

3. B.O.B in downtown Grand Rapids has a fresh new look, in the form of a living wall.

It was installed on their outdoor patio on May 10.

According to the Gilmore Collection, which owns the B.O.B., the wall is going to help the place look better. It’s also a push toward sustainability and minimizing their carbon footprint.

Gardeners will grow things like chard, kale, herbs, and other veggies which will eventually end up on your plate at the different restaurants.

 

4. A new movie is filming in West Michigan, and they're looking for extras.

The faith-based drama “God Bless the Broken Road” is directed by Central Michigan University graduate Harold Cronk, who was behind the successful "God's Not Dead” films.

The movie tells the story of a woman who loses her husband in the war in Afghanistan and loses her faith in God.

Some of the film's scenes include stock car racing and movie extras are still needed for shoots on May 12 and 13 at Berlin Raceway.

For more information, go to Berlin Raceway’s website.

 

5. It looks like this moose wants an audition for the Grand Rapids Symphony.

A video was taken at a cabin in Alaska after the owner heard the wind chimes moving.

When she went to investigate she found the moose rubbing his head against them.

So of course she grabbed her phone and filmed the moose in action.

Now she has a new ring tone called "moose music" or as she calls it "moosic."

    We really enjoyed with the staff at the B.O.B. on this local living wall project. The Gilmore Collection has been sourcing food locally for years, and this vertical garden installation at the B.O.B. provides the ultimate urban option for freshness. The herbs and greens are literally picked within steps and minutes of consumption.
