Port Huron prepares for a party

Boats, carnival rides, concerts, and fireworks… all part of Port Huron’s annual Boat Week celebration. Blue Water Fest activities kick off Wednesday evening with the Rotary International Day Parade at 6:30 and the opening of a small carnival midway in the McMorran parking lot. Thursday night is family night with Operation Transformation hosting activities at the northeast corner of the 10th street bridge. Also Thursday, alternative rock band Puddle of Mudd will perform in the south McMorran lot, with fireworks at dusk at Desmond Landing. Friday night is boat night, with the Port Huron Yacht club open to the public, and country star Dylan Scott performing at night. All the activities lead up to the 98th sailing of the Bayview Yacht Club’s Port Huron to Mackinac sailboat race on Saturday.
