Glen Arbor 4th of July Parade 2024

July 4 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

“Stan Brubaker’s” Celebrate America – 4th of July Parade, 2024

Celebrate America on the 4th of July with floats and vintage cars, as they parade from Glen Haven to Glen Arbor at 12 Noon.

Jim Dorsey will be honored as our Grand Marshall for the 4th of July Parade this year. Jim, an Empire treasure, is enjoying his 100 th year on Glen Lake. His service as Empire postmaster for 28 years and his first-hand recall of local events during the past century is cherished by all his friends and acquaintances. 

This annual community parade is open to anyone who wants to celebrate the founding of our great country on its birthday. Parade vehicles will gather in Glen Haven early Thursday morning at 10:30am and will proceed towards Glen Arbor at Noon. Walkers are asked not to join the parade until the last vehicle passes the Christian Science Church, via Forest Haven Rd.

This is all of our parade! Please help keep yourself and others safe. Many stretches are very crowded. Please keep children away from entering the street and follow the guidance from the “broom crew” which is comprised of many volunteers who “broom” candy from the street. Water balloons and squirt guns are prohibited, and we ask you to spread the word to all our spectators. Anyone is welcome to participate. No registration is required.

Please contact the Township office at (231)334-3539 if you can help with the “broom crew.”  More helpers are always welcome. Flagging tape linking orange cones emphasize the boundary for parents and their children.
