The Gladiator is Coming

Exciting News! Two 2020 Jeep Gladiators will be on display during Jeep The Mac


Don't miss this opportunity to join in the excitement
Whether you watch the Jeeps as the parade crosses the bridge, or set up your lawn chair on State Street, you will have a front seat on all the action. The variety of Jeeps is amazing - old and new, big and small and all the colors of the rainbow.

Well, Jeep the Mac participants sure did show their Jeep pride!
We had almost 800 Jeeps registered for 2018! It was an amazing display of Jeep pride to see all the Jeeps make the Mackinac Bridge crossing.  We hope to see you in 2019!
