There are plenty of family-friendly options with LaughFest this year. One is the Seriously Funny Family Adventure Challenge! It's like the Amazing Race with minute to win it challenges involving teams racing across downtown Grand Rapids. If you like puzzles and getting your steps in at the same time, this is for you.

Saturday morning at 10 you could check out the kid jokes time show at Gilda's Club. Young comedians are encouraged to take the mic and tell their favorite jokes.

If you want the whole family to get involved, you can check out the Family Improv at the Comedy Project. You and your crew will be led by local impov instructors, playing silly improvised games. Great to play on future road trips or at home.
