The 4th of July celebrations will be plentiful in the upcoming week. Picnics and parties are on many agendas to celebrate the United States independence from the British Empire. Two of the main things that people look forward to during the holiday are the fireworks displays and parades. Many of Blue Water Area communities will be having both over the weekend.
Port Sanilac kicks off celebrating Friday, June 30th, with a lighted boat parade that starts at the harbor and winds along the lakeshore at dusk. Saturday it's time for their annual Independence Day at noon. That evening you can enjoy fabulous explosion of light, color and sound over Lake Huron at their fireworks display.
Friday, June 30th also kicks off the 79th Annual Algonac Lions Club Pickerel Festival. Along with the fishing tournamet there will be all kinds of family such as fun as a carnival midway, daily entertainment, food, arts & crafts and more. On Sunday, June 2nd they're having the antique boat parade along the waterfront at 4pm and fireworks at dusk.
On Tuesday, July 4th itself, festivities are in full swing too. Port Austin starts off with floats and pageantry with a parade at 1pm. At dusk, families and friends will gather at Bird Creek County Park, Veterans Waterfront Park, Port Austin State Harbor and along the shoreline to watch the fireworks.
St. Clair invites you to grab and blanket or lawn chair and come sit down along their boardwalk on the evening of the 4th around dusk. That's when their fireworks happen over the river there.
