People from all over travel to see Lansing Memorial Day Parade


Teresa Englehardt drove all the way from New Jersey to see the Lansing Memorial Day parade.

"I think we traveled about 600 miles. We left late last night and got in about this morning right around 9 and we got right up here," Englehardt said.

People like the entertainment the parade has to offer, and it keeps them coming back year after year.

"We see the grand children and my daughter and it's a perfect parade, said Ellen Bonner, resident of Marquette. "The kids love it."

Some first timers thought it was even better than the parade in Detroit.

"It has way more veterans coming in and out, and in Detroit I've never seen a marching band," said Reese Malone resident of Detroit.

The annual event has been a long established tradition for many families.

"It was very important as a child I always participated in it. As brownies and girl scouts, and so it was a real big deal for our family so I'd like to pass it on to the grandchildren and my children," Bonner said.

As for Teresa missed the parade, but she's coming back next year, hopefully to see all the excitement.

"We wished we could have seen it but is a beautiful day and it's raining in Jersey so we're glad were here," Englehardt said.
