Festival of Flags 2008

Davison's Festival of Flags 2008 started tonight. Don't bother looking for details online. The new Davison Index doesn't have the schedule on their web site and neither do the Chamber of Commerce or City of Davison web sites. (I did find a nice Shop Downtown Davison website though!) Pure Michigan, the state's travel web site, has the same minimal info as teh Chamber of Commerce site, but it's more than the Index or City web sites. I guess if you want the schedule you have to read the printed copy of the Davison Index!

The festival started tonight with a parade (usually a good one -- about 1.5 hours), an ice cream social at the firehall, and fireworks in the park. After a day in the park with four of my great-nieces and -nephews, I was so tired I skipped the parade. We live behind the part and I had hoped to watch the fireworks from home but they weren't above the trees. How disappointing. By the time I realized that, I was far too tired to drive over to the football field (since we no longer live close enough to walk) and try to find a place to park before it was over. How disappointing!

Activities for the rest of the weekend include:
  • A carnival at Hahn Middle School Wednesday night - Sunday
  • Karoke at Davison House (formerly known as the Davison Hotel) Thusday night and Sunday night
  • A car cruise downtown Friday night
  • Family Movie Night at Colonial Square Friday night (showing Open Season starting at dusk)
  • A beer tent at Madden's (local pub) on Friday and Saturday nights
  • Art in the Park on Saturday and Sunday
  • A quilt show at First Batist Church Saturday
  • Miss Davison Tea Party at Trinity Lutheran Church Saturday
  • A chicken dinner at the Masonic Temple Sunday

I always enjoy the Festival, especially the Art in the Park. If you are looking for something to do this weekend, come to Davison and join the fun.
