Just Another Saugatuck Saturday

Saugatuck showed off its springtime best today.

The Saugatuck Rowing Club was the prettiest place on the river.

Viva Zapata prepared for Cinco de Mayo.

Craft Butchery and the CM Gourmet Market boomed. Downunder was flooded with kayakers and paddle-boarders.

And Saugatuck Sweets celebrated its grand opening. There were balloons, temporary tattoos (with all proceeds going to Al’s Angels), and blessings from a priest and rabbi. Both clergymen expressed hope that the richness of the ice cream will add to the richness of the neighborhood.

    Saugatuck sweets is great, the perfect compliment to what is already there. Good luck!!!!

      That would be “complement” but the compliment is deserved, too.
