My mom graduated from Gwinn high school and a lot of my mom’s and dad’s family live in Skandia, so I have been to the Skandia Community Day at the West Branch Recreation Center quite a bit.
This years Community Day is going to be this Saturday, July 21st!
I remember running around snatching up Tootie Fruities on the ground when the parade entrants threw them out to us. The games, the music and the people all made the event worth it.
There is just one road at the park and that’s where the parade marches. The parade starts at 1 p.m. at the Maple Lane Farms and afterwards there are games, food, a beer tent this year and live music from the “Queen of Hearts” so you can dance all night! And I am going to be in the parade for Great Lakes Radio! I will be driving WFXD’s sister station van for Sunny 101.9.
Also, at 7 p.m. we are hosting the WRUP Texaco Country Showdown! You can sign up to sing there or you can watch the other competitors!
To get the the West Branch Rec Center, if your heading south from Marquette, 10-15 miles out of Harvey take a right on Krieger Dr. and there you are, right on the parade road : )
COME HAVE SOME FUN!!
