experience grand rapids

May 26, 2011

Check out this unprecedented video filmed in my hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan!  It is a bit long so make sure you have time to watch the whole thing.  It is well worth it, especially since a few of my friends show up toward the end! 

Back in January, Newsweek declared Grand Rapids a ‘dying city’.  The mayor responded with a light-hearted letter with proof that the city is alive and well.  This video is the response of the great people of Grand Rapids, better known as Grand Rapidians, and was headed up by Rob Bliss.  It features a cast of 5,000 which is apparently a new world record!  Cast members include several local celebrities and personalities, the mayor and other politicians, as well as the aforementioned personal friends and acquaintances (dancers and a few musicians).  

Well done, Grand Rapids!  A dying city, indeed!  Ha! 

Sigh… I love GR.
