All are welcome to enjoy the six-block, 20 minute parade, which is exciting and fun for children and families. Highlights of past parades include a squad car from the Ann Arbor Police Dept., a City fire truck (with siren), American flag color guard, local dignitaries, volunteer drum line from Huron High School, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, neighborhood businesses, and more. Homemade floats (decorated toy wagons) are welcome, and children ride their red, white and blue decorated bikes. Families with baby strollers bring up the rear of the parade, and there is an easy shortcut to the park. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet neighbors, elected officials, and enjoy the beginning of spring.  

Prizes will be awarded for:

  • Best Float
  • Best Bike
  • Best Costume
