VERY CHERRY PORCH PARADE
Because the National Cherry Festival was postponed this summer until next, due to Covid-19, the Traverse City community is finding a new way to celebrate cherries. They’re calling it a Porch Parade. Throughout the area, people are decorating their porches and yards with cherry decorations, lights, and patriotic symbols. As at Halloween and Christmas, some have gone all in and others are simple displays. There’s a map online of the Porch Parade homes at the Cherry Festival website. It’s been nice weather, so head out for an evening drive to check out all this creativity...of course, with the air conditioning going full blast.
