The Parade Company is decking the Ovation’s hull with Christmas bling, and whipping up a strolling festive feast with merry cocktails, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 24, for the annual “Christmas in July” celebration. Get ready to mix, munch, mingle, and rock around the Christmas tree; Collision Six, one of Detroit’s favorite party bands, provides the musical backdrop for the occasion! A portion of the proceeds from every ticket purchased for this Summer Cruise Series event benefits The Parade Co.’s charity partner. You’ll be contributing much-needed funds to help preserve and restore the Big Heads, the world’s largest papier-mache head collection, housed right here in Detroit. In its historic 12th year, Big Heads Corps hosts events and activities throughout the year in metro Detroit and marches in America’s Thanksgiving Parade presented by Art Van. Boarding begins at 6:30 p.m. sharp at The Port Authority Dock in downtown Detroit. Tickets are $105 per person and must be booked online at SummerCruiseSeries.com.
