You are invited to attend this early summer rally at the Allegan County Fairgrounds nestled on the banks of the Kalamazoo River in the charming and historic town of Allegan, Michigan.The fairground is beautifully wooded with power and water at the spacious RV sites and has four dump stations just outside the main gates. Additionally, on the fairgrounds is the John Pahl Historic Village (free admission).

Downtown Allegan you will find specialty stores and antique shops, a selection of restaurants, a coffeehouse, and upscale dining. The town also has the Old Regent Theater, a fully restored 1919 Landmark theater, that shows first run movies. Additionally, there are two 600’ Zip Lines that cross over the river at the waterfront.

Our rally will be held within the FMCA Great Lakes Area Rally which is titled “Friends and Fun Aplenty at Glamarama 2020”. We will camp together as a group at the Born Free Leap’n Lions Club campsite area. (You do not have to be an FMCA member to attend and the cost is the same for FMCA members and non-members alike).

FMCA will provide 4 nights of camping, 3 Nights of Great Entertainment, Saturday Pancake and Sausage all you can eat Breakfast, 2 morning Coffee Hours, Ice Cream Social, Anytime Picnic Lunch, Optional Ladies Tea (additional fee), New RV Displays, Several Vendors, Book Exchange, Block Party, and much more. Additionally, they offer some great daily Optional Tours (additional fees) with round trip transportation to and from the fairgrounds. Tours include: Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum and Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park (Wed), the local Farmers Market (Thur), Luncheon Cruise on the Star of Saugatuck SternWheeler Paddle Boat (Thur), St Julian Winery (Thur), Gilmore Car Museum (Fri.) and even a golf outing.

In addition to all the activities offered by FMCA, at our Born Free Leap’n Lions Club campsite area we will have a Wednesday evening Wine & Potluck Dinner (please bring your favorite dish to share) and several social gatherings throughout the rally. There will be a nominal per person charge to cover host provided meat, wine, buns, paper plates and etc for the potluck.

So come join your hosts Dean & Jan Preston and Nick & Dee Dee McClain in June for fun, fellowship and great times as we reconnect with old friends and make new friends in Allegan, Michigan.
