Last year the Mystic Maiden barely squeaked by The River Queen Salon to take first prize. We have a feeling that Jaime will kick it up, even more, this year!, the Parade of Lights on the Clinton River is set for August 4th, 2018.

Parade of Lights on the Clinton River

There is still room for a couple of boats, so get off your dingy and contact Julie @ (586)469-6000 to pre-register.

There is no cost to enter your boat and the bragging rights alone are worth it.

The parade starts at 8:45pm at Markley Marine, runs to the bridge – Then to the mouth of the lake and back to Markley Marine for the post-party bash!


Last year $8,400 was raised for the Detroit Animal Welfare Group. This is a family friendly boating event and there are two levels of sponsorships.

Gold $500.00 and Silver $250.00 Gold sponsors receive their logo on all the plaques, names on advertising, posters, The Harrison Twp. Parade of Lights-Facebook, Markley Website-Facebook and companies thanked for their support throughout the evening.

Silver sponsors receive names on advertising, posters, Website/Facebook companies thanked for their support throughout the evening.

  1. No fee at all. The best place to view is DNR ramp at the end of south river road. They changed the route this year so we are going by there first. Should be by 9:30ish
