The parade will begin at 1 p.m. sharp, heading down Bay Street to Woodland Road, left on Traverse Street and ending at the American Legion Hall. There will be a special acknowledgement to veterans and military service members.

If you haven’t been to this fun parade in the previous three years, you must check it out. It’s a blast, with really creative parade entries that include kids on bikes, grownups on tractors and motorcycles, sweet dogs in costumes and even horses traveling the parade route. It’s a wonderful slice of home-town Americana.

Here are a few photos from last year’s parade. Check out the full gallery here.
