As you know I was up in Michigan and them Yooper's as they call themselves celebrate a bit differently so of course I had to document for all my lovely folk down here! The day started out gorgeous with it being cool but the sun shining bright. I knew it was going to be a great day, even though I was missing my sweet Adam, because I knew good food was in store! (There I am again with the food!) The parade started out at 12 pm and it was fun but different, because the last time I was up there I think I was one of the youngins running out to catch tootsie rolls, and bubble yum. The parade had floats for all the school reunions, the churches, and town companies. At the end there were the horses, but not as many as the Williston parade...you got Munising beat! :)
When we maxed out on the Pier festivities we headed up to the water fight. Another bizarre but fun Munising tradition. All the firefighters come in on the fire truck and they form four teams to battle against. Then they proceed to have a massive water fight where all the town children play in the water behind their favorite fireman. I have a video of this too, to bad I can figure out the video upload. It is precious to hear the children squeal with delight as they run through the water.
We ended the day with amazing fireworks!! We had to wait until 11:30 though which is way past my bedtime. It just takes so long to get dark there.
The next day we celebrate my Grandma's 75th birthday with family out at camp. Good food, great company, and cherished memories!
Decorations and the theme is 4th of July
