Thousands of spectators lined the streets of Iron Mountain-Kingsford for the annual Fourth of July Parade. Organized by Americans for Constitutional Enforcement (ACE), the theme of this year’s parade was “Proud to be an American.” Winners in the Patriotic Division are Niagara Fabrication, first place; U.P. Dance Academy, second place; and CCI Systems, third place. In the Commercial Division, The Drug Store was first; Threads & Shirt Tails, second; and Caring Hope Suicide Prevention, third. ACE has been organizing the parade since 2002. In the top photo, Balsam Street Christian Church member Rebecca Peterson of Kingsford throws candy to kids on Woodward Avenue. The winning Niagara Fabrication entry is shown at the lower left, and The Drug Store float is shown at the lower right.
