MUSKEGON September 8, 2015– Families and friends of labor lined the streets of downtown Muskegon yesterday for the 21st annual Labor Day Parade– one of only two in Michigan (the other being in Detroit). Following the parade, there was fun, food and games in the parking lot across from the CIO Hall.
Local unions also donated $3,500 in classroom supplies to Muskegon schools.
“This year, our Labor Day parade is all about engaging working families in our community to come together and enjoy some festivities and have some fun, reach out and build relationships and have some family entertainment for the kids,” United Way of the Lakeshore labor liaison Jana Routt told the Muskegon Chronicle.
