Catch us at the 4th of July Parade in Glen Arbor. 

The National Lakeshore and the Friends will be walking in the Glen Arbor 4th of July parade. 
The Friends will be walking and carrying our banner, wearing your orange vests and possibly some new 50th Anniversary Logo Wear. We will also be driving the Trackchair along the way. We will have some small goodies we are giving away too.

If you’d like to participate please send an email for the details.


Fourth of July 

Enjoying the 4th of July in Northern Michigan is a tradition for many.  Please keep in mind fireworks, firecrackers or any other pyrotechnic items are not allowed in Sleeping Bear Dunes.  Law Enforcement rangers can write tickets for setting off fireworks. Fireworks can spark wildfires, disrupt other visitors and wildlife and they leave trash behind plus the loud noises disrupt the wildlife.
