The 21st annual Uptown Holiday Shop Hop is a perfect time for students to visit the downtown Grand Rapids community, which has supported GVSU since its beginning. This event, which will occur on Dec. 6 from 4 to 10 p.m., spans the four business districts of East Fulton, East Hills, Eastown and Wealthy Street. More than 70 businesses are involved in this event which will feature special deals, Christmas carolers, holiday treats and more. This will insure an evening filled with shopping and holiday cheer.
“It is a day that we encourage the community, shoppers and audience members to come in, interact with our stores, and shop local for the holiday season and to just experience Uptown with friends and family,” said Collin Bailey Jonkman, the marketing and events manager for Uptown.
