The Grand Parade

We have a variety of participants here to entertain the young and old. We have music to motorcycles, fire trucks to tractors, mini T's to horses. We have the Charlotte High School, Eaton Rapids High School, Olivet Middle School bands and they are here to show the community the awesome talent of their members.

What parade would be complete without queens and their court? We have the 2008 Frontier Days queen and her court, Vermontville Maple Syrup queen, St. Johns Mint Festival queen and Michigan's own Ms. Michigan.

Tunes Are Us DJ's will also be hosting this years Grand Parade. Join Jason Vanderstelt & his staff as they MC the Saturday morning parade along Cochran Ave.

...hope to see you there next year!
