3rd Annual Lakeside Emporium Sweetest Day Parade
October 15 - October 20
The Lakeside District is planning their annual Lakeside Emporium Autumn Fest! This fall celebration happens October 16 – 20 and culminates with the 3rd Annual Lakeside Emporium Sweetest Day Parade! In addition to being tons of fun, it will also be a “harvest” for those in need in the community. Participants and those who attend are asked to bring non-perishable food items and new or unused winter wear, such as gloves, mittens, scarves or hats for distribution to area food banks and shelters.
Their main recipient is Kids’ Food Basket and the items they need are:
Fruit cups or pouches
Snack size zipper bags
Toasted oat cereal
Decorated 8lb Bags
The parade will feature musical groups, marching units and decorated vehicles. This will be a ‘sweet’ opportunity for organizations and individuals to come together to celebrate the fall harvest by giving to those in need.
The parade is scheduled for Saturday, October 20 with a 9:30am step-off time. It begins at the Grand Trunk parking area at the foot of McCracken, then heads east down Lakeshore Dr., then into the Lakeside Emporium parking lot..
If you have a group and are interested in participating, please call Laureen at 231-755-9933 as soon as possible.
