U.S Vice President Mike Pence In Grandville For Fourth Of July Parade

Vice President Mike Pence is in the Grand Rapids suburb of Grandville this morning for the Fourth of July parade.

Pence’s visit had been rumored for several days. The vice president confirmed it on Twitter this morning.

Staff at Gerald R. Ford International Airport confirm they were notified earlier of a potential visit from the vice president’s plane, Air Force Two.

Pence’s plane landed at South Bend International Airport Saturday, according to a report from the South Bend Tribune, and the aircraft management company providing services for the plane reported that the vice president is vacationing in Michigan.

Grandville’s Fourth of July events spanned the long weekend, starting with a run/walk on Saturday, July 1, and concluding with fireworks on Tuesday, July 4.

Tuesday’s festivities also include the annual parade, which begins at 11 a.m. and runs down Wilson Avenue, and various ceremonies, activities and events centered primarily around Grandville Middle School, 3535 Wilson Ave. SW, and nearby Wedgwood Park.

The Grand Ledge Army National Guard plans to land a Lakota helicopter at about 1:20 p.m. and make the helicopter available for viewing for up to four hours.
