Spring is in full force at Saugatuck’s Dunes Resort


The first weekend of April is Easter, and the folks at Dunes Resort are getting the weekend started with the “Biggest Bonnet & Basket Party” featuring Dunes’ resident DJ Mark Vallese. Now whether you have a big bonnet, or you’re more gifted in the basket area, you’ll have to show up to see if you are the biggest of them all!


Since no Easter would be complete without an Egg hunt, be there on Sunday for the Easter Egg Hunt (starting at 3 pm) and stay for Sunday’s traditional Bingo (starting at 4 pm).

On Friday the 13th, the bears descend on Saugatuck for the Spring Bear Weekend. Friday starts with a Bear-e-oke (don’t make me spell it out for you) and Mr. Bear DJ himself, Mark Vallese will spin some retro disco. Saturday will have Mark spinning at the main bar, and Goldie Locks & the 3 bears performing in the Cabaret. Bear Bingo closes the weekend on Sunday from 4 to 7 pm. Bears from the Great Lakes, Chicago & Detroit will be on hand, so don’t miss out!


April 20th’s weekend is Spring TG Weekend, complete with a TG Prom on Saturday, and as always, closing with Bingolicious on Sunday from 4 to 7 pm.

April closes with a bang with the 31st Annual Black & White Anniversary. The Masquerade ball on Saturday is not to be missed! Amy & Freddy of RSVP / Atlantis Cruise fame will also be there, so make sure you catch them for a song of two. Close your weekend with Bingolicious on Sunday from 4 to 7 pm and enjoy the ‘summer’s” first Tea Dance outside on the deck (till 9pm).


If you want to come back for another awesome weekend, May 18th has the Save a Horse/Ride a Cowboy Weekend, and one of gay Saugatuck’s biggest weekend: Memorial Day Weekend (start on May 25th) featuring DJ Randy Bettis who will be giving away 2 FREE passes to the 2012 Riptide @ Disney Lagoon Event on June 1st & 2 FREE Weekend passes to the pool parties at the GayDays Host Hotel. NYC DJ John LaPage spins the big tea of the weekend on Sunday May 27.
