Talking with the organizer Julie Angst, she says this year will be the biggest yet. Every year all monies raised go to a chosen charity and this year is no exception with the charity being the US Navel Sea Cadets.

The US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, is a federally charted, non-profit, civilian youth organization for young people 13 through 17. They provide compelling, life-changing programs for America’s youth that instill the value of teamwork, discipline, camaraderie and service through our passionate all-volunteer force.

Our partnership is with the U.S. Navy, Coast Guard, Marine Corp and Merchant Marine. The Sea Cadets Great Lake Division research/training vessel ”Pride of Michigan,” moored on the Clinton River, provides dive training and exploration of the Great Lakes. Our goal is to develop the next generation of stewards, of the Great Lakes and protection of fresh water.

On top of the great cause, it is an awesome family event as well. There are plenty of spots both on land and on the water to view the parade.
