More than 2,000 gymnasts and close to 10,000 visitors—that's the amount of people drawn to the DeVos Place convention center each December for Gymnastics on the Grand.

Hosted by Grand Rapids Gymnastics, the annual event is the largest gymnastics event in Michigan and it is run by parent volunteers, 

"It's great for the city, but it's really great for our kids," said Darcy Mullet, one of the event organizers. "All of the people that run this meet are parent volunteers, and we all do it for our kids. They are so proud to have this home meet. It's the best meet they go to all year."

2015 was the sixth annual Gymnastics on the Grand, and each year it inspires repeat customers.

"We definitely want to come back," said one parent who was attending for the first time. "It was a great experience."
