Muskegon, MI—Muskegon’s second annual Heritage Village Neighborhood Garden and Car Show will take place Saturday, July 11, 2015. The event will run from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Clay Avenue, between Fourth and Seventh Streets in downtown Muskegon, Michigan.
The purpose of the Garden and Car Show is to raise funds to re-light the vintage street lights in Heritage Village neighborhood and to raise awareness of this unique and historic area. The Village encompasses an area between Second and Ninth Streets, bordered by Muskegon and Clay Avenues. As part of an earlier restoration of the neighborhood, twenty-eight ornamental street lamps were installed with funding from the Muskegon Heritage Association in the mid-1970s. With support from the City of Muskegon, the lights were an integral part of the village street lighting for decades. With funding no longer available, the lights have been dark for the past three years. Sponsors of the Garden and Car Show hope to “light up Heritage Village” with the proceeds from the Garden and Car Show event.
