Marquette, MIJuly 4, 2016 — Washington Street in Marquette was packed with people who were celebrating the Fourth of July. The floats were bright, flashy and showed off a lot of red, white and blue! This year, Sunny.fm, 103FXD and WRUP were well represented for Great Lakes Radio. Todd Noordyk, our leader here at Great Lakes Radio Inc., was heading up our vehicles with Adam Carpenter from the Outdoor Show. Adam was captaining  a stylish Kawasaki Mule from Zambon’s in Marquette with  Miss Pre-Teen Great Lakes State and Miss Pre-Teen Upper Midwest in a boat in tow behind them passing out candy with smiles and waves.

Eric Tasson was at the helm the 103 FXD truck with Lane Dawson as his trusty co-pilot. Premium Pole Buildings and Storage Sheds was behind them pulling our newest giveaway prize, the Steamin’ Summer Sauna. Bill Tibor was following them in the WRUP van with Mike and Walt from the Sunny Morning Show saving the day and completing our line-up in the Sunny.fm van with their flashing lights.

There was a fantastic showing of floats and groups on this sunny Independence Day. Miss U.P. Rodeo and Miss Great Lakes Rodeo made a good showing. Another parade favorite of mine was the TEAM showing of all of their trail riding vehicles.

It’s a great sunny day for celebrating the day The United States of America gained its independence. Let us know how you celebrated your holiday or any of your favorite attractions from the parade!
