Judy Garland was born Frances Ethel Gumm on June 10, 1922 in Grand Rapids, MN. Her parents were former vaudevillians who had settled in Grand Rapids to run a movie theater that featured vaudeville acts.

The family moved to Lancaster, CA in 1926. Judy Garland was cast in The Wizard of Oz when she was 16 years old.

Today, the former family home in Grand Rapids is the location of The Judy Garland Museum. Each June, the city holds the Judy Garland Festival.
