South Haven, MI Summer 2019

We invite artists, store owners and residents to decorate a bicycle for display around town this summer to celebrate South Haven's designation as one of the first Pure Michigan Trail Towns and draw visitors to your business, neighborhoods and sights of South Haven.

Bikes will be debuted in the Fourth of July parade and on display through September 15 when they will be auctioned.

We can match you with an artist if you like and help you find a spot if you don't have one in mind.
