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!
