To start everything off, again this year, are the Menominee Nation Dancers and a traditional Fish Boil, sponsored by the Marinette Moose Lodge, to be held from 3 to 7 pm at Red Arrow Park. The Menominee Nation tribe tracks its roots to the mouth of the Menominee River, where the City of Marinette now sits. The Menominee Nation is the only present-day tribe in Wisconsin whose original story states that they have always been native to the state. If additional parking is needed for Red Arrow Park, there will be free parking at Harbor Town Marine, 203 E. Russell St., with a shuttle-bus available.

Starting at approximately 9 pm, the free Family Movie on the Island will be "The Lego Batman" Movie. Bring lawn chairs and blankets for this popular family event. New this year, will be a children's bicycle raffled off to a lucky child, compliments of Riverside Auto. Refreshments will be available.
