2007 Fenton Freedom Festival Parade

The reception at the Fenton Hotel on July 3rd to honor the Durant Family as the 2007 Fenton Freedom Festival Grand Marshals had a very nice turn out. There were plenty of delicious hors d'oeuvres provided free of charge to the public by the Fenton Hotel. The presentations, declarations and anecdotal Durant family stories highlighted the evening. Jan Rynearson honored and remembered Mary Alice Durant, who passed away in 2006. Pat Lockwood said that this was one of the most enjoyable Fenton Freedom Festival Receptions to date.

Rain washed the early morning in Fenton, Michigan on the 4th of July this year. A fine mist of occasional rain kept the crowds cool in the mild temperatures during the parade. The Hall family of Hall Chrysler in Fenton provided the silver convertible Seabring as the Grand Marshals' car. Driving the Grand Marshals, Ray Durant, Dave Durant and Todd Durant, is Bob Harris who is one of Uncle Ray's real life nephews.

For as bad as the weather forecast was for Fenton on the 4th of July, the day turned out to be quite nice. Rain didn't ruin the parade, and by the late afternoon the sun was seen peaking out over Lake Fenton. Temperatures warmed up into the high 70's, possibly low 80's, before the firework display at Silver Lake Park later that night.
