About 2,500 music lovers from across the Lakeshore and beyond poured into Mill Point Park in downtown Spring Lake Saturday afternoon for the Earth’s Edge 25th Anniversary Celebration starring national touring acts Leftover Salmon, The Way Down Wanderers and Arkansauce.
Co-hosted by Grand Haven’s Earth’s Edge and Courtyard Concerts, it was a Spring Lake event for the books, with fans gathered on blankets, in lawn chairs and standing in the crowd to cheer the unique alternative-folk and Americana blend of bands on stage.
Colorado’s Leftover Salmon — which blends bluegrass, country, rock and Zydeo into its approach — wrapped up a day of entertainment that saw fans dancing together at the front of the stage as dark clouds and windy threats of rain gave way to clearer skies and sunshine toward the end of the celebration.
The day-long event featured food and drink offerings, as well as vendors from outdoor adventure businesses in keeping with the spirit of Earth’s Edge, which also raffled off countless outdoor prizes.
Also raffled off: an acoustic guitar, signed by all of the members of Leftover Salmon. – Matt Marn
