MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Campgrounds on the lakeshore are pretty much full, as people from all over West Michigan settle in for the Fourth of July and a busy weekend of activities.
From the Here's to the Heroes celebration, to the Lakeshore Art Festival, there's lots to do in Muskegon. There will be music from 4-9 p.m. Friday at Heritage Landing, plus fireworks at 10:30 p.m.
A city worker there is welcoming visitors in his own special way. "I am going to put a flag on the mower today," explained Randy Schneider of the City of Muskegon Department of Public Works. He says he's reminding drivers arriving on the lakeshore of the meaning of Independence Day.
To him, that meaning is "just the freedom of living in this great country."
