Parades in Jackson
Jackson has some great attractions and festivals. One of the beautiful things about the Jackson area is that it is retained its small town feel while offering many events and destinations that would only be offered in a larger area. One of the most popular events in the Jackson area is the Jackson County Rose Festival. Now in its 56th year, the festival celebrates Jackson which is known as The Rose City because of its official flower. The parade, which brings people out from all over the county and beyond, started in 1958 and two years later, the Jackson County Rose Queen Pageant was inaugurated.
The Jackson County Rose Parade usually happens in June and the theme in 2015 is going to be “Sizzlin' Summer: Celebrating all the summer events and things to do in Jackson during the summer.” Local organizations join forces to reward achievers in the community while at the same time promote themselves. The Rose Parade is one of the largest in Michigan with over 100 entries participating every year. The parade runs from S. Jackson Street and Greenwood Street to Fourth Street and ends at Parkside. The parade usually starts at 1:00 p.m. It truly is a good time had by all and it is a kick back event that has the feeling of old time Americana. Immediately following the parade there is an event known as Picnic in the Park which is held at Ella Sharp Park. Over the years, the days events have grown tremendously and it truly is a fun time for all participants and spectators.
So, now that you have plans to include one of the biggest activities in the Jackson area into your plans, you will want a way to up the ante on the experience. And we have just the thing. Get your group together and rent a party bus from Party Buses Lansing. When crowds are gathering in one place like the Rose Parade, the last thing you want to do is fight traffic to get to a good viewing spot and then there is always the horrible task of trying to find a parking spot. And if you really want to up the fun factor, our party on wheels will give your group as much entertainment as it can handle before and after your parade viewing. Thinks about it, what is bad weather hits? Then you have a nice warm and cozy party bus to escape to and keep the fun flowing.
However you want to plan it is up to you. But lets say you have your group picked up around 12 noon. While enroute to the parade, you and your friends can avail yourselves of some amazing features we have installed for your enjoyment. Our vehicles have bar areas with built-in coolers that can be stocked with everyone's favorites. This will be available to you as long as you are in the party bus. There is also high definition flat screen televisions with DVD player that can be used to enjoy some bloopers or maybe one of your favorite programs. If some of your group feels like dancing, we have installed customized hardwood floors complete with dancing pole. This could be a good time to get a little active before you have to sit down for awhile to watch the parade. But to dance, you need some music so you have a concert quality sound system to use with CD/iPod/MP3 inputs. Did we mention the LED color changing lighting on the walls, ceiling, steps, and coolers? Talking about adding to the fun times.
When you arrive at the parade, your drivers will let you off at the most convenient drop off point so that you don't have to walk a mile to get to the parade. You can watch all of the floats and bands go by for as long as you care to and then head back to the party bus. If you have another destination in mind, you can certainly tell your driver to take you there or have it on your itinerary from the beginning of the trip. And isn't it great peace of mind to know that since you will be enjoy a little bit of drinking, you don't have to worry about a DUI or anyone in your group getting hurt because of drinking and driving. We hire only experienced and certified drivers who know the roads in the Jackson area very well. They can get you to where you are going and do it as timely as you desire.
