Labor Day is the holiday in which we recognize and celebrate the contribution of all America’s workers to the growth and continued vitality of our Nation. You could spend the last weekend of your kid’s summer vacation shopping for backpacks and pencils, or you could enjoy one last fun-filled family weekend at the one and only Labor Day Parade and celebration in West Michigan!
Everybody loves a parade! This is an all-inclusive community parade through the streets of downtown Muskegon. The parade will start 11:00 am on Monday September 5th, 2016, and will end approximately around 12:30pm. We are planning a fun filled FREE post parade celebration following the parade that will go until 4:00pm at Hackley Park in Muskegon (350 W. Webster Ave. Muskegon, MI). We will have food provided by Greek Tony’s, music by Plain Jane Glory, refreshments, cotton candy, snow cones, games, prizes, face painting, bounce houses, and much more!! For more information or an application to be in the Labor Day Parade, please contact Jana at 231-638-2741 or Jana@unitedwaylakeshore.org
*The parade starts at the intersection of 4th street and Western Avenue. It will progress down Western Avenue to Jefferson Street (turning right) and heading towards Clay Avenue. The march will continue down Clay Avenue and end at Hackley Park for the post parade celebration!
