Scores of Trump supporters are expected to gather for a MAGA boat parade in Detroit, Michigan to celebrate the former president’s 78th birthday.

The Michigan Conservative Coalition has organized the event on the Great Lakes, on Saturday, launching from the Nine Mile Tower mark in St. Clair Shores at 1 p.m. From there, the procession will follow Detroit’s shoreline so people can see it, before it ends at Gordie Howe International Bridge. The National Weather Service has forecast a sunny day for the boat parade on Saturday, with a high of 77 degrees Fahrenheit and “calm wind” in the afternoon.

Trump is, in fact, in Detroit this weekend, but he is not expected to attend the parade as he is a major speaker at The People’s Convention at the Huntington Place Convention Center downtown.

The event, sponsored by Turning Point Action, will also welcome Vivek Ramaswamy, Charlie Kirk, Candace Owens, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and Donald Trump Jr. It will run from Friday, the actual day of Trump’s birthday, to Sunday, and is open only to those who have received an invitation.

Although there are discounts available for students, general admission goes for $100, while VIP tickets are being sold for as much as $600.

The convention describes itself as “the natural focal point of the national conservative political movement ahead of the 2024 election.”
