HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s 74th birthday will be celebrated with a boat parade in southeastern Michigan.

The Michigan Conservative Coalition and Michigan Trump Republicans 2020 are hosting the “Make American Great Again” parade Saturday afternoon. It will start at MacRay Harbor marina in Macomb County’s Harrison Township and end near the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit, the Detroit Free Press reported. Trump’s birthday is June 14.

Matt Seely, spokesman for the coalition, said organizers are anticipating that nearly 1,000 people will attend.

“Truthfully, with everything we’ve been through (with) the COVID-19 crisis, I think that people are really just excited that Michigan is opening back up on Monday, and that it’s summer in Michigan,” Seely said. “The Great Lakes are beautiful and everyone wants to get on their boat.

They expect that about three seaplanes, one helicopter and several drones are to join the parade, Seely said. A car parade will also be taking place at the same time.

There have been similar events honoring Trump in Arizona, South Carolina and California.
