Join Uptown for holiday fun this year on Thursday, December 5 for the annual Uptown Holiday Shop Hop. Stroll around Uptown as we bring the holiday cheer... and if you get tired, we've got six free shuttles running until 10 p.m. The event begins at 4 p.m. and free shuttles will run the district from 4-10p.m. Holiday Shop Hop brings the feel of big-city shopping right into our neighborhood business districts.

The 2013 Uptown Holiday Shop Hop is brought to you by the Uptown Grand Rapids and lead sponsor Griffin Properties. Over 70 businesses will have specials and events during Holiday Shop Hop, winner of the 2013 Neighborhood Business Award for Best Promotion. Visit your favorite Uptown business the week of Holiday Shop Hop to get a flyer with a Shuttle Stop map and business directory so you won’t miss any of the specials! You can also visit the Uptown Shop Hop Event Page on Facebook for up to the minute details.

Uptown is an area in Grand Rapids comprised of four exciting business districts: East Fulton, East Hills, Eastown, and Wealthy Street; and five thriving residential neighborhoods: Baxter, East Hills, Eastown, Fulton Heights, and Midtown. If you are looking for the best in retail shopping, eating and living, we invite you to visit Uptown. Visit the Uptown GR website for more information.
