13.117. Grand Havens Coast Guard Fest

July 20, 2013

89th Annual Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival is July 26-August 4 2013.

This is one of my favorite West Michigan Festivals and look forward to it every year. The festival is to celebrate and honor the men and women of the US Coast Guard. So the Coast Guard does an excellent job of bring in some amazing ships usually includes tours on some of the boats.

Besides the boats the festival also includes carnival, art fair, huge parade, huge firework display, car show, music, food, dances, kids day, senior day, coast Guard Picnic, etc. many manny many things to do for the whole family. Most people I know head to Grand Haven during the Coast Guard Fest for the Art Fair, the Parade, and the fireworks. When I say most people I do mean lots of people, this event does get crowded so plan to do some walking and make use of the shuttle parking they provide in the area.

Tip: Many people make this entire day, weekend, or week event for the family. With nice weather parking becomes a premium at the beaches, YMCA, surrounding streets, and other various lots. Making the walk to the beach or the downtown a long walk. Shameless plug here, perfect item to help you get your gear around to enjoy the day is a Lakeshore Beach Cart.
