Looking for something to do this week in Kalamazoo?  Never fear!  I've got you covered!

July 1st: Take the kids to the Kalamazoo Nature Center Market Barn for Farmyard Wednesdays: Wild Guests. Enjoy special farmyard programs on Wednesday mornings this summer!

July 2nd: Deep Fried Pickle Project at Bell's - Deep Fried Pickle Project's songs echo back and forth from the 1920's to the 2091's. A music at once playful and irreverent- Hokum and Honkytonk Space Sushi all rolled up into one. From the great Depression to the Great Recession, the Pickles run the gamut of old timey styles, even grabbing an occasional 80's pop tune and turning it into a flap happy chicken scratchy 78 RPM tune. Armed with a Frankenstonian array of homemade monster instruments, their musical recipe is flavored with Jug Band, Hokum and Honkeytonk spices. You'll relish the Pickles!  Get it?  Relish...?  I'll see myself out.
