You know summer is in full swing when you drive up Red Arrow Highway and start to see the umbrellas in Harbert. Stunning hand painted market umbrellas once again greet visitors as they make their way through the town known for its cool shops, art galleries and great restaurants. The popular summer event “Umbrellas of Harbert” sponsored by the Harbert Business Association (HBA) is an annual celebration of art and summer where local businesses display original, hand-painted market umbrellas
designed by various artists.
On August 21, the 20+ umbrellas will be sold at a charity auction that will take place at the Center of the Word Showroom located at 13400 Red Arrow Hwy, beginning at 5pm. The event will feature live music; wine tasting, and hors d’oeuvres. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on their favorite umbrella in a live auction with proceeds benefiting ADA projects at both Cherry Beach and the River Valley Senior Center Each year we look for local charities that perform extraordinary services and we felt both were doing great things for the community!”
The summer long event is a wonderful opportunity to add some unique art to a patio or garden and best of all, it’s for a great cause! For more information visit participating Harbert businesses, visit www.harbert-michigan.com or call 269.876.7879.
