Yankee Doodle Day

Saturday, June 19, 2021

This year's family-friendly community event will include a parade in the morning and then music and fireworks in the evening. 

This beautiful six acre park is located right on the Grand River and is only a short five minute walk southeast of downtown.  

PARKING:  There are several parking spots along River Street as well as city parking lots located downtown.  A limited number of handicap parking will be available at Jaycee Park. 


 
 


The parade will start at the Sawdon Administration Building.  The parade route will proceed to S. Bridge St. across the bridge to N. Bridge Street and end at the Fire Station.

There are many locations throughout the parade route to get a great view of the parade entries.

Parade participation is FREE to all organizations and groups EXCEPT those participants running for or currently holding an Elected Office position, which have a minimum fee payable at the time of registration.

Organizations/groups must register in advance, and registration forms will be reviewed and approved. The Grand Ledge Area Chamber of Commerce reserves the right to deny any registration form. All applicants, sponsors, and participants are subject to approval by the GLACC Board of Directors.

The Grand Ledge Chamber of Commerce coordinates this parade on behalf of the Grand Ledge community and area businesses. We are committed to providing a safe and exciting event, and require parade participants to comply with our policies.
