Twenty-­‐Seventh Annual Parade and Rally will Salutes Veterans

DETROIT, MI – In its 27th year, the Mack Alive Parade will pay homage to those that have sacrificed through Military service. The parade will march down Mack Avenue from St. Jean St to East Grand Blvd., beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 25, 2018. Mack Alive Founder, Executive Director Artina Hardman hopes dedicating the parade to veterans will heighten the understanding and appreciation for the value of military service to the nation. “For too many years, our veterans have been put on the back burner-­‐ we thought it befitting to pay respect and dedicate this year’s parade to all those who have fought for our freedoms,” she said. Floats will begin lining up at 9:30 a.m. May 19 at Mack and St. Jean streets, and the parade will begin at 10:00a.m. and culminate on the grounds of Genesis Lutheran Church; 7200 Mack Ave. at East Grand Blvd. The culmination event includes a community rally with a Battle of the Bands between some of Detroit’s greatest marching bands including Cass Technical High School, Martin Luther King Jr. High School, the Fire Drumline, Detroit Party, Harper Woods High School and Edison High School. Event attendees will have an opportunity to receive blood pressure and HIV screenings along with health and wellness information. All food, entertainment, and youth events are free to the public. Local artists and vendors will be on hand with various selections for purchase.
