2013 Lilac Parade

It's lilac time on Mackinac and the highlight of the season (besides the glorious lilacs) is the Lilac Parade!

The leader of the parade is always Don Andress, a descendant of Chief Mackinac.

We have beauty queens, including the Lilac Queen, Princess and court:

Pretty horses:

Bands of all types:

Decorated floats:


Walking entries (no cars, of course!):

Including clowns:

And bikes too!:


Even the bike riding street sweepers:

And the grand finale is always the Scottville Clown Band, doing a raucous bump and grind the length of the parade route:

It's a great parade, with certain traditions but always with a bit of a twist - come join us next year!
