I was struck in owe for a second there when checking in the thread.
key word above: a second....
Yep soon after halfway through that second a lot of things did not sum up.
So after an innitial read through and even leaving one or two comments i did a bit of a web search which for starters yielded the following:
(I will update if i dig anything more, supporting one or the other side of things. Feel free to do so too if you feel like it
You might want to visit blog.mlive.com...
about one third down the page you will see the following picture:
See it up close: A crowd watches the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw enter the harbor last year from Lake Michigan at Grand Haven. The cutter
will be open for tours during the Coast Guard Festival.
If my critical opinion and debunking skills are right, this is the same place about the sime time, same day, same event, but different photographer
(propably) as well as a different angle of view.
Despite having a different angle of view there are some giveaways that its the same spot, e.g. crowd, dressing code, weather conditions etc. (I think
even shadows but cannot be sure...) The previous sentence is mostly valid.
So i hope i have some stuff for you to think over for the time before getting back with further possibilities.
In the meantime i will give you a snippet of the web address i reffer to for those that haven't already vissited the link.

GRAND HAVEN — Paul Wronski's convinced this first weekend of the mammoth Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival is the hidden gem of the 10-day

Coast Guard Festival schedule after the story.
"It's the best time to come down to Grand Haven and enjoy the Waterfront Stadium and enjoy all the things going on," said Wronski, trumpet player
for Soul'd Out, an uptempo, seven-piece rock and dance music band that headlines Saturday night's entertainment at Waterfront Stadium.
"It's our chance to really shine in front of the community. ... So many people come out for this particular concert. We feel like we're playing for
the town of Grand Haven. People feel it's their time to come downtown because it's less crowded and it's a great social event."
The secret's out.
Bye for now !
