GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Though the U.S. soccer team fell to Belgium Tuesday, many in Grand Rapids gathered downtown to enjoy the World Cup came together.
The game was shown on a large, LED screen at Ah-Nab-Awen Park. A large crowd gathered to view the game, which started at 4 p.m., for free.
Attendees were allowed to bring blankets, lawn chairs and coolers packed with food and non-alcoholic drinks, a release from Downtown Grand Rapids, Inc. said. Venders also had snacks available for purchase.
Kristopher Larson with Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. said that pre-game and half-time activities would be available, and the person who had the most patriotic costume supporting the U.S. would win a $50 gift certificate to SpeakEZ Lounge.
