LET'S MAKE THIS THE LARGEST ASSEMBLY OF WORKING FAMILIES EVER IN THE U.P.!

Come celebrate Labor Day! The Marquette Alger Community Labor Council and the U.P. Regional Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, are excited to host the 29th Annual Labor Day Parade Festival.

The event will be held in Ishpeming on Labor Day (Sept 3, 2018). The Festival will begin at 11:00 AM with a parade along Euclid Street, Main Street, Division Street and Lakeshore Drive. This year’s Parade Marshall will be Erin Lakenen, member of IBEW Local 906. After, there will be a picnic and rally from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. at Lake Bancroft Park.

The theme for this year is “Still Standing, Still Strong”. We encourage Local Unions to march and enter floats in the parade that reflect this theme. Prizes for floats are 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place trophies. Please contact
Tony Ghiringhelli (906) 236-3889 or Rich Helgren (906) 458-8380 for details and to confirm your participation. Parade line up starts at 9:00 a.m. and will be based upon a draw from the hat.

Parking will be available at the Cliff Shaft and the Ishpeming Elks Club.

We will be having a picnic lunch. The cost of lunch tickets will be $6.00. The menu includes the following; your choice of a pasty or 2 hot dogs & chips, desert and pop or milk. Tickets for adult beverages will be $3.00 each. Additional pop and water will be $1.00 each.
