Update: We had an exciting parade this year and are excited to share a :30 minute special, re-airing highlights and the best moments of the parade on July 22. The Mackinac Island Lilac Parade special is made possible by our supporting sponsors: The Pink Pony, Mission Point Resort, Fort Mackinac, McLaren Northern Michigan, Reyes Coca-Cola, and the Mackinac Island Tourism Bureau. You can catch it on Local 32 at 6:30p and on 9&10 News Watch Now at 7:30p.
The Mackinac Island Lilac Festival returns June 9 through 18, culminating in the much anticipated 2023 Lilac Festival Parade. Join 9&10 News anchors Lauren Scafidi and Eric Brazeal in a virtual front-row seat as they host the 75th Annual Lilac Festival Parade from the Island House Hotel! You can watch live and on demand from the comfort of your home so you don’t have to miss any of the exciting action.
Be there when the cannon fires from Fort Mackinac, kicking off the parade at 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 18. Watch by visiting the On Demand tab on 9and10news.com, the 9&10 News Channel on VUit, or on the 9&10 News YouTube Channel, or the Mackinac Island Tourism Bureau’s Facebook page to catch it all!
