GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.--- A piece of Michigan history will return to the streets of Southeast Grand Rapids this holiday weekend.

Organizers of the Hollyhock Lane Parade say it’s the oldest continuing Fourth of July procession in the state.  The parade was founded in 1934 by the Calvin-Giddings Patriotic Association.  This will be the event’s 80th anniversary.

The Hollyhock Lane Parade will kick off at Calvin Avenue and Alexander Street SE at 8:30 a.m.  on July 4. The procession will end at Franklin Street and Giddings Avenue.  A patriotic ceremony will begin in the backyard of 847 Giddings shortly thereafter.  Float awards, refreshments and live music will also be featured.
