ATTENTION!! ATTENTION!! LINK TO LILAC PARADE SUNDAY, JUNE 16, AT 4:00 P.M.

As promised, below is the link Mike Forrester is providing to the live stream from Mackinac Island of the Lilac Parade Sunday afternoon, June 16, at 4:00 p.m.

When you click the link, you will see a picture of the fort.  The link will go active around 3:45 p.m. Sunday afternoon.  Mike will also be recording the event.  If you miss it live, you’ll be able – hopefully –  to watch it later on YouTube, even though it will be in 15-minute increments, because that’s all YouTube allows.
Below is a note from Mike:
Brian Bailey, the general manager of the Lilac Tree where we’re staying, has told me they are announcing the parade from the room next to ours, so viewers hopefully will also be able to hear the loudspeakers announce the bands, performers, floats, etc.  I’m still a bit concerned about Internet bandwidth, so there may be times when the live stream freezes or hiccups.  Nothing I can do about that, but hopefully it won’t be too often.
Thank you SO MUCH Mike for taking part of your vacation time with your family to provide this service for everyone out there you loves Mackinac Island, but couldn’t attend the parade in person.  You ROCK!

  1. Thank you, Brenda, for giving us the link, and thank you, Mike, for making it possible. We’ll be at our son’s for Father’s Day, but I’m sure he’ll let me use his computer. This is really special for all of us who can’t be there in person.

  3. Thank you Mike for making this happen! I can’t wait to see the parade. Happy Father’s Day to all the Father’s out there!

  4. I heard the man say there are 259 people watching already. I’m proud to say that I’m one of them. What a beautiful day for a parade.

  5. Thank you! thank you! thank you!!! What a day to make one homesick for Michigan. NASCAR race from M.I.S., followed by a live parade. What a wonderful deed you did for all of us. Brenda, I know you will pass along our heartfelt gratitude! sigh…..

  6. Bree, thank you for getting the information out about the webcast of the parade. First time I had ever seen it. Please give Mike a message thanking him for doing this for those of us who couldn’t be there. I enjoyed it a great deal. Thanks again Bree and Mike.

  7. Hi,

    Thanks Brenda give Mike a Huge hug from all of us we watched as we traveled down state very cool way to go home …. Island style!

    Blessings,
    Theresa and Family

  8. A zillion thanks to Mike for bringing the Lilac Parade into our homes. It was great, and we really appreciate all the work that went into making this possible. I really miss all the live web cams we used to watch daily, but now are gone. A thank-you to you too Brenda.

  9. Even though every time my husband and I go to Mackinac is during the Lilac Festival, we’ve never been there for the parade. Thanks so much for broadcasting it, Mike!

    Also, Joanne, there are a couple of web cams still available–the Chippewa and the Island House still have active ones (although the Island House is a still image that refreshes every 60 seconds). Links are below.
