Parade of Lights is an annual lighted boat parade on the Clinton River.
Started in 1987 by Harrison Township Supervisor Candice Miller and organized by Boat Town USA, a group of local businesses including Markley Marine (now Lambrecht Marina), this event grew into an annual summer tradition.
In early 2014, Julie Angst (manager of Lambrecht Marina), successfully expanded the parade by making it a charity event.
This is a family friendly boating event and there are two levels of sponsorships.
In 2019, over $8,000 was raised for the Detroit Animal Welfare Group.
Boats will gather at Lambrecht Marina (formerly called Markley Marine) at 9 pm, and head west to the Bridgeview Street Bridge then to the mouth of the Clinton River and back to the marina.
If you are interested in being a sponsor, please call Julie at 586-469-6000.
If you would like to participate in this years parade please contact Julie for details.
They do need boats to participate in the parade. The parade will be led by The Pride of Michigan!
