4th of July Boat Parade

The Parade is held on the 4th of July at 1:00 pm. Registration forms can be downloaded here or picked up at the Knotty Oar Marina. All registrations must be completed and returned to the Marina in order to receive a parade number. Entrants must display their parade number on both sides of their watercraft.

Boats gather on Upper Prior near Charlie’s on Prior. Judging takes place at 1:00 from a courtesy pontoon (thanks to the Knotty Oar Marina). Once judging is complete, the sheriff and the judging pontoon will lead the decorated boats under the bridge and past Lakefront Park.

Prizes are donated by the Knotty Oar Marina and local businesses, and are awarded in three categories: pontoons, personal watercraft and runabouts (fishing, skiing, deck boats, etc.). Prizes must be picked up at the Knotty Oar Marina.
