Feel the spirit of understanding and unity as international residents and visitors from more than 50 countries wearing their finest traditional dress set the tone for a grand global display of flags, floats and fanfare. Look for the legendary Blizzard T. Husky, Michigan Tech’s warm and fuzzy mascot, and Riku F. Lion, Finlandia University’s “Mane” man. Other Parade of Nations stars include the high-energy, crowd-pleasing Huskies Pep Band. As always our First Nation leads the procession, in respect and celebration for the Native Americans who were first to call this place home.
