Davison’s Festival Of Flags Is In Full Swing

Flier-FrontIt’s another busy Summer for events and this week and weekend will only add to the fun as Davison celebrates in style.

This week marks the return of Davison’s Festival of Flags and the ‘City of Flags’ have five days of fun planned.  With a parade, a Fun Run, fireworks, and more there is enough to do to keep families busy each of the five days and there will still be things they missed.  Country music from Bullhonky Deluxe will be presented on Friday in the entertainment tent in Jack Abernathy Regional Park and the same park will host KISS tribute band War Machine on Saturday.  Each of these concerts is just five dollars, though you must be 21 and over to be in the tent after 9PM on Friday and must be 21 to get in to see the show on Saturday.  For those looking for a little calmer afternoon you can take a walk through the Market In The Park where vendors will have their wares for sale this weekend.  Saturday will also be the day of the Pet Show Off Showdown where pets will be entered and will compete in costume to see who is the Cutest, Most Patriotic, Most Unique, and more.

The weather this weekend is set to be warm and mostly clear so it will be perfect for fun at the Festival of Flags where the music, carnival, market, and more will keep you busy in the best of ways.

Drive at 5: Graff Chevrolet in Davison is the place to be after work

Davison’s Back to the Bricks Tune-up Party kicks off at 5 p.m. today. The cruise starts promptly at 6 p.m. and there are intermediate stops all along the way including John’s Pizzeria and VG’s. The Tune-up parties have, thus far, been quite popular. It would not surprise me, however, if Davison’s turned out to be the biggest.

If you go, you might just get a free t-shirt as well.

Graff Chevrolet is located at 800 N. State Road in Davison.

He’s from Davison: Boston Bruins goaltender, Tim Thomas, could hoist Stanley Cup

Tim Thomas grew up in Davison and probably knows someone you know. Heck, maybe you know him. I don’t, but what I do know is that it’s pretty cool to have someone from Genesee County on the verge of winning a Stanley Cup.

Thomas, arguably the NHL’s top goaltender, has led the Boston Bruins to a birth in the NHL Finals with stellar play in net.

From The Flint Journal:

The Davison native, who was a force of stability for the Boston Bruins during the regular season and continues to be in the playoffs, assured Bruins fans their team would emerge from the NHL Eastern Conference Finals by defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning. And by virtue of a 1-0 win in Game 7 of the series with Tampa Bay, the Bruins did so, punching their tickets to the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Bruins take on the Western Conference champion Vancouver Canucks at 8 p.m. Wednesday in Game 1 of the finals.
