Tight Lines for Troops

May 17 - May 18

Tight Lines for Troops provides veterans with a day of fun camaraderie, and thanks them for their outstanding service to our country. Veterans pay no charter fees, entry fees or banquet fees! Priority is given to WWII and Korean War Veterans, POW’s and Purple Heart Recipients.

The public is invited to bring their flags to the Manistee River walk on Saturday, May 18th at noon to be a part of the area’s biggest and best salute to these American heroes.  Rolling Thunder Michigan Chapter #1 will once again generously supply thousands of loaner flags for fans to wave as the fleet returns to port.  Downtown merchants have prepared a day-long celebration on River Street to expand this year’s events.

This year’s event is hosted by City of Manistee, Little River Casino Resort, Seng’s Marina and Charterboats from Manistee and Northern Michigan.   Additionally, local Veterans groups – United Veterans Council, Little River Band of Ottawa Indians Warrior Society, our local National Guard and U.S. Coast Guard, Rolling Thunder Michigan Chapter #1, Manistee County Visitors Bureau, the Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce, Downtown merchants and a host of volunteers from across the state contribute to the event.
