    See you on July 27-July 28, 2018
    This unique festival is full of family friendly activities including children games, 80’s Rock n Roll Concert, Dinghy Poker Run, Lighted Boat Parade and Fireworks.

    The events start Friday at 5:00 with children’s games in Coghlin Park on the waterfront. Then the Rock n Roll tent opens and the 80’s music will have you dancing the night away to your favorite songs.

    Saturday fun is jump started with a rowdy dinghy poker run where boaters spray each other with squirt guns as they race to card stops along the Kalamazoo River to get the best poker hand.

    Saturday night rules with a breathtaking Lighted Boat Parade where boats will be decorated to promote this year’s Festival theme “Salute to Our Military”. The evening is capped off with Fireworks over the Kalamazoo River that can be easily seen by all. Check our Events page for times and other details.
