Marquette, MI — July 4, 2016 — The street was packed with people who joined in the Fourth of July parade celebration. The groups were bright, friendly and some even showed off a lot of exciting sounds! This year, Sunny.fm, 103FXD and WRUP were well represented for Great Lakes Radio. Todd Noordyk, our leader here at Great Lakes Radio Inc., was heading up our vehicles with Adam Carpenter from the Outdoor Show. Adam was driving a stylish Kawasaki Mule from Zambon’s in Marquette with Miss Pre-Teen Great Lakes State and Miss Pre-Teen Upper Midwest in a boat behind excitedly passing out candy with smiles and waves.
Eric Tasson was manning the 103 FXD truck with Lane Dawson as his co-pilot. Premium Pole Buildings and Storage Sheds was behind them hauling our newest giveaway prize, the Steamin’ Summer Sauna. Bill Tibor was next in the WRUP van with Mike and Walt from the Sunny Morning Show saving the day and completing our line-up in the Sunny.fm van with flashing lights.
There was a all-around great showing of floats and groups on this warm and wonderful Independence Day. The Marquette High School Class of 1971 float especially eye-catching with their VW Van structure and ’70s throwback decorations. Another parade favorite was the veteran and military groups who were well represented and respected throughout the parade.
It’s a wonderful sunny day for celebrating The United States of America’s independence. Let us know how you celebrated your holiday or any of your favorite attractions from the parade!
