Real to Reel: Freedom to Marry

September 20 | 7:00 PM + post-film discussion
FREE admission

Our fall Real to Reel Series kicks off with the award-winning documentary, “Freedom to Marry” presented in partnership with the ACLU of Michigan.

The film tells the story of Evan Wolfson, the architect of same-sex marriage, and his colleagues who led a decades-long battle to win rights for LGBT people, culminating dramatically at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Winner of “Best Documentary” at the Savannah Film Festival, “Freedom to Marry”, directed by Eddie Rosenstein, is the surprising story of the most successful – and perhaps most inspiring – civil rights movement of our time.

Our giant parade mascot, The Pumpkin King, rises from the ashes at ten-o-clock to get the whole thing rolling!

This year our flash mob will bring things to a close with a KICK! 

WEATHER: The parade must go on regardless of what the weather brings! We parade rain, sleet, snow or moon-shine so dress accordingly and get ready to have some fun! If the weather is wet or too windy, the Pumpkin King may have to sit it out so he doesn't get ruined.

No sign-up, just come in costume and line-up.

Our volunteers whill help direct you where to go.


Parade lineup begins at 9:30, and the Pumpkin King rises from the ashes

at ten o'clock to start the parade.
