Downtown St. Joseph is Filled with Spring Fever

Downtown St. Joseph is Filled with Spring Fever During Spring Ahead Weekend, March 1-3


Downtown St. Joseph has spring fever and invites the community to join them for the Spring Ahead weekend. 


On Saturday, March 2 visitors can stroll downtown and enjoy March Mannequins sponsored by The Boulevard Inn & Bistro, Edgewater Bank, and the Southwestern Michigan Tourist Council. Dozens of community volunteers will pose perfectly still in participating store windows from 7 to 8:30 p.m. This year’s theme features Awkward Family Photos. The community was asked to submit their awkward family photos for the chance to have their photo featured in a downtown window. If you haven’t submitted your photo yet, there’s still a chance to submit it via email to by 5pm on February 8.


Additional weekend fun includes the Build Your Way Around Town LEGO® Big City Build at the Shadowland on Silver Beach Ballroom March 1-3. Attendees will get the chance to view spectacular cityscapes featuring multiple trains built by professional builders from the Western Michigan LEGO® Train Club. This event is free and open to the public. For a complete schedule of Build Your Way Around Town events held throughout the month of March visit

In addition to many summer and fall events, winter and spring are also jam packed with fun for all ages. During your visit, explore our beautiful downtown! Grab a bite to eat at one of the mouthwatering restaurants, shop for one-of-a-kind merchandise featured in downtown shops, go wine and beer tasting at the local wineries and breweries, or visit one of our stunning beaches or walking trails—there is something for everyone, at every time of the year.”
