Take Your Greyhound to Mackinac Island for the 2018 Lilac Festival
June 16, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 17, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
Ever considered a vacation with your dog?? Come join your greyhound friends for two days of the fabulous Mackinac Island Lilac Festival, including a Dog & Pony Parade on Sat. the 16th, and The Grand Parade, Sun. the 17th. It is a fun way to get together with fellow greyhound lovers and vacation up north. Though not a GEM sponsored/sanctioned gathering, we have been participating in this Mackinac Island tradition for almost 20 years, bringing our beautiful dogs before a new audience of admirers.
We have reservations for rooms for our GEM group at the off-island Driftwood Motel right across the street from the Star Line ferry dock in St. Ignace. Star Line ferry tickets are usually free for both days we parade the pups, and we have lots of time for enjoying our dogs and their greyhound families, and of course the lilacs!
