No summer in Michigan is complete unless you’ve taken part in the fun found at the Coast Guard Festival in Grand Haven, Coast Guard City USA. While honoring the men and women of the United States Coast Guard, the CG Festival offers events for people of all ages. It’s always held during the last week of July and first week of August. Concerts, picnics at Oval Beach, enjoy the lively rhythms of Semper Paratus (Always Ready) during the parades, on-board ship tours, dinners, a carnival and fireworks make for quintessential summer memories. Head out to the Lake!
