Popcorn and Billboards!

Last weekend, Pete the Popcorn visited Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Let me tell you, this was worth the drive:

Yep! That’s Joe in front of Pete the Popcorn’s Billboard in Grand Rapids, Michigan!

And yes! That’s Nick with the billboard, too. No, we didn’t have anyone else to take the photo. Real celebs we are…

Grand Rapids Popcorn Company held an awesome event. There were lots of kids there, we moved some books, the kids all got free popcorn… and everybody had an awesome time during March is Reading Month in the State of Michigan.

Here are some more photos from the event:

Grand Rapids Popcorn has been handing out coloring sheets! Great job, kids.

I love that Pete is blue in that coloring sheet.

Popcorn and Crayons! Yum!

Kids were quite patient waiting for the reading…

The kids were excited for their free slushies!

I was surprised and so very happy with the turnout…

The kids loved showing off their coloring sheets!

What a turnout!

We love involving the kids in the reading… makes it more fun!

And our first prize winner!

The adults who asked questions got the big bags of Popcorn!

These kids loved their winnings!

And these girls were happy to show off their popcorn and coloring sheets…

Here is Nick with a young reader…

The kids certainly love Pete and Grand Rapids Popcorn!

This family took home the loot… I hope they took home a book!

The kids weren’t too excited about their popcorn… Dad works there. So I guess they get a lot of popcorn!

So that’s it from Grand Rapids, Michigan!

Please go visit Grand Rapids Popcorn Company if you’re in the area— and if you’re not, go see their website!

Thanks Mike, Karen, Laura and everyone else at Grand Rapids Popcorn for a great event!

Tomorrow— a ringing endorsement! And some fun pictures…
