Over the years, we occasionally have taken the time to produce videos about the groups that choose Grand Rapids as their meeting destination.
Sometimes it's a big "Thank you!" message, and sometimes it's just a way to let more people know about their organization.
One of the first groups we covered was the 2012 Mid-America Oireachtas Championships, an incredible Irish dance competition for young people.
The organization came to Grand Rapids over the Thanksgiving Holiday with guests staying in three downtown hotels. The competition was held at DeVos Place convention center. And since it was over Thanksgiving, the weekend included a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
Check it out. (And look at those curls!)
