Lambrecht Marina (formerly Markley Marine) continues to host the Harrison Twp. Parade of Lights on the Clinton River for the eighth year!


My name is Julie Angst, I am Chairman of the Harrison Twp. Parade of Lights. I have managed this event for the last 7 years. The Harrison Twp. Parade of Lights, is a community event that is sponsored by many neighboring marinas and local businesses, to help raise funds for a local 501(c)3 charity.

This is a family, friendly, charity event that takes place on the Clinton River.  Participants decorate their vessels and cruise the river, to benefit the chosen charity and possibly win the grand prize.

A panel of selected judges will determine the winners. This year judges, include Jay Towers, from Fox 2 news! First place is $1000.00, second place $500.00 and third place is $300.00.  Resident winner receives $100.00.

The Parade of Lights Clinton River will be held on Saturday, August 6th, and will be led by The Pride of Michigan!

The Parade of Lights can be viewed at Bumpers Landing, Crews Inn or at the Harley Ensign Memorial Boating Access Site. The parade begins at Lambrecht Marina @ 9:00p.m.

In past years, the Harrison Twp. Parade of Lights, has helped raise funds for:

Macomb County Sheriff-Marine Division, Harrison Twp.  Firefighters- Toys for Tots, Detroit Animal Welfare Group, Noble Odyssey-Sea Cadet of Harrison Twp., Detroit Dog Rescue, Children’s Foundations-Stilson Specialty Center and the ReJoyceful Animal Rescue.

Our past sponsors include: Lambrecht Marina, Freedom Boat Club, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Pleasantrees, Lori’s Lick ‘Em Up Ice Cream, Huron Pointe Excavating, EDC of Harrison Twp., MacRay Harbor, Tow Boat US, Great Lakes Training, Blue Water Marine and many of our local area businesses.

This event could not continue without the generosity of our sponsors.

This year the proceeds will benefit Angels of Hope. Angels of Hope is a 100% volunteer charity! Angels of Hope’s mission is to provide critical support to Michigan families impacted by cancer.  Their goal is to help ease the burden caused by disease, its treatment and its devastating effects-both financial and emotional.

They tailor grant programs for each family they work with, so they receive help where they need it most. Angels of Hope has also developed a series of unique programs that provide emotional support to families coping with cancer.

To be a sponsor or participant, please contact Julie @ Lambrecht Marina 586-469-6000.
