Island Harbor Marina, St. Clair Shores
This event provides disabled participants, both physically and/or mentally challenged, with a day to remember. On Derby Day, the Marina is a noisy, colorful site with clowns, balloons, music and excitement. Volunteers offer their time to help participants don life vests, pack fishing poles and board boats for a fun excursion. Started 23 years ago with 12 chartered boats, the event now draws more than 60 boats.
