For the first time ever, the Lilac Festival Grand Parade was broadcast live on the internet and over 900 viewers in the United States and Canada tuned in for the event. The hour-long broadcast originated from the 2nd story of the Lilac Tree Suites and Spa and was produced entirely by the Mackinac Island Blog's own Mike Forrester.
If you weren't able to see it live, or just want to watch it again, here it is, in it's entirety. Enjoy!
We hope to see you soon on Mackinac Island!
The Mackinac Island Blog will be providing a complimentary live stream of the Mackinac Island Lilac Festival Grand Parade at 4:00PM ET on Sunday, June 16th. We will be webcasting from the Lilac Tree Suites and Spa on Main Street overlooking the parade from our 2nd floor vantage point.

I found one website that had 3 trails not to miss on the island. I can't seem to find it again. The trails is Across The Turtle Back. I have looked on the map of the island I have, and can't find it there either. Can anyone help? Thanks!
