GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Cultural festivals give the public a chance to experience other countries and learn about their heritage. The second annual Lithuanian Day Festival returns to Grand Rapids on Saturday, April 30.
Lithuania is one of the three Baltic states bordered by Poland, Belarus, and Latvia. Many immigrants came to West Michigan in the late 1800s and right after World War II. The festival is a chance for the Lithuanian-American community to reach out to West Michigan and bring awareness to their culture. The event includes festivities, music, food, and vendors.
The Lithuanian Day Festival takes place at Saints Peter and Paul Parish at 1433 Hamilton Ave. NW in Grand Rapids.
