Coopersville Summerfest to return with a new name

COOPERSVILLE, Mich.—Coopersville Summerfest will return next year under a new name.

The week-long event will be called Del Shannon Days.  The Rotary of Coopersville will be sponsoring the event, after donating $10,000 to the Coopersville NEO Forum and $4,000 to the Del Shannon Scholarship Fund from the Rotary-run Del Shannon Car Show.  According to the Coopersville Summerfest Facebook page, the Rotary has donated a total of $61,200 to both groups over the past four years because of the car show’s success.  Kate Terpstra with the Del Shannon Car Show says the event is in its 24th year, and each year it grows.  On average, they estimate 75,000 turn out for the main event, with 600 vehicles on display.   

Duane Young will help organizers coordinate the week long community events.  Del Shannon Days 2014 will take place August 4 through August 9.
