Grand Festival – Saturday, August 5th
Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival is all about family and fun. So why wouldn’t we have a parade just for kids on the first Saturday of the festival and then on the second Saturday do it all again on a grand scale? See below for information on parade times, routes and how to register if you want your group to be in the parade. See you there!
The Meijer Grand Parade is a highpoint of the annual Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival. In the 2-hour parade, you’ll see marching bands, clowns, military units, local sports teams, dignitaries and many other groups.
Nearly 100,000 people attend and line the streets of “Coast Guard City, USA” to show their appreciation for the valuable service that the men and women of the United States Coast Guard provide to all of us each and every day.
