Muskegon, Mich. – Celebrate summer with the Michigan Apple Queen at the Muskegon Summer Celebration! The 2004 Michigan Apple Queen and a newly-redesigned float will appear in the Grand Parade on Saturday, June 26 at 12 p.m. The float and the queen are sponsored by the Michigan Apple Committee.

The 2004 Michigan Apple Queen, Amanda Schweitzer of Sparta, along with first runner-up Amanda Morlock of Watervliet, and second runner-up Kala Winkel of Watervliet will be waving to the crowd from the orchard-themed 2004 Michigan Apple Industry Float, designed by 2003 Queen Janna Klein.

The Muskegon parade is one of more than a dozen events the apple industry's “royalty” will be involved in this summer.

“I look forward to participating in the parade on the beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline, and representing the Michigan apple industry,” said Schweitzer.

The Muskegon Summer Celebration lasts from June 24 – July 4 and includes concerts, family entertainment and more. For information, visit www.summercelebration.com.
