Fair heats up in Sand Lake

People turned out in all shapes and sizes and in all types of apparel for the annual July Fourth Celebration at Sand Lake Wednesday.

With temperatures reaching the upper 90s and the heat index even higher, residents brought umbrellas, wore hats, and staked a place in the shade for the annual Grand Parade. Business was hopping at Rosie’s Ice Cream, as people sought ways to beat the heat.

We’ve been under an excessive heat warning, and due to the high temperatures, McDonagh’s Amusements, the company that runs the carnival at the Sand Lake celebration, has decided not to open the Midway until 5 p.m. for the next few days, until it cools down.

There are activities still going on at the celebration, through Sunday.

Six-year-old sings national anthem

Kacie Platz, 6, should be getting used to singing in front of crowds. She’s done a lot of it in the last year, and she sang the national anthem at the Sand Lake Fourth of July grand parade Wednesday.

Kacie recently graduated from kintergarten at Tri County and is the youngest of three daughters of Tim and Deana Platz of Sand Lake.

“Kacie had a good time and was proud to sing in honor of our independence and in front of the military that were present at the parade,” said Kacie’s mom, Deana.

Kacie has also sung at the West Michigan White Caps, Tri County Varsity Basketball game, 9-11 parade in Sand Lake, and the Tree Lighting ceremony in Sand Lake.
