SPARTA, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Sparta Town & Country Days, a summer tradition in Kent County, are going on right now. The festivities started on Wednesday and run through the weekend.
Friday is kid's day, featuring all kinds of fun for the little ones -- including pony rides, a stay and play kid zone, and a "kidsgroove" dance party.
Organizers say a key to Town & Country Days is the community's involvement.
"We have lots of events spread out throughout downtown Sparta," said volunteer Kristi Caine. "We just like to bring the community out for a great big party and have a good time."
One of the main events for the weekend is the run through Sparta Saturday morning.
The annual fireworks display at Balyeat Field has been rescheduled to Saturday, July 25 due to weather.
