Head on down to Glen Arbor and shop/dine – most places are open for at least half the day for visitors. Grab a spot and enjoy the big 4th of July Parade downtown Glen Arbor, beginning at 12pm. The parade leaves from Glen Haven making its way through to the North/East end of town. This year’s parade Marshal is Jim Fowler and the Glen Arbor Park Commission.
If you’re a boater, you can join in on the boat parade 4th of July evening on the Glen Lake beginning at 4pm in front of the Yacht Club.
Want to participate in the parade? Cyclists (kids and families) and Walkers can join in the parade starting at the Christian Science Church. Cars and Floats participating in the parade, please meet at Glen Haven to line up 45 min prior to the parade start time. The parade begins at Noon.
Want a front row seat? Volunteer! We always need as many parade volunteers as possible. Bring your own broom to help walk with the parade and sweep the candy back towards the crowd, to keep kids off the street and safe.
Most shops and restaurants are open part of the day for you! Please make sure to come to town early to park and enjoy shopping the lovely retailers and art galleries. Whether you’ll end up back where you’re staying or head back home, there’s a beach or lake or trail for you to enjoy some outdoor recreation the remainder of the holiday.
