-Lori, from Lick 'Em Up Ice Cream, was awarded the $1000.00 Grand Prize, on August 3rd, at our awards ceremony. She and her family worked very hard decorating the boat and did a fabulous job! Lori was announced the Grand Prize Winner. Lori came up to accept and asked to speak to Earl Stilson. She generously donated the prize winnings back to the Children's Hospital of Michigan Foundation- Stilson Specialty Center. Her generosity, spirit and kindness are a true example of what a HERO is. WE commend you and honor you Lori! Thank you for being you!

To our participating Captains’, the parade would not exist without you. Thank you for all that you do to make this parade a success. We know it is costly and time consuming to decorate these boats.
