FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE:
Boat parade this year 2023 will be held on Saturday JULY 1st 2023
With Fourth of July being on a Tuesday this year and people possibly working on the Monday before the holiday, the association decided that Saturday would be the best date for participation in the boat parade.
The Lake of the Woods Improvement Association will again sponsor the decorated boat parade around Lake of the Woods. Beginning promptly at 6:00 pm for a 6:30 start.
Lake residents and other boaters are encouraged to decorate their pontoon boat or other watercraft for an evening of fun. There is no particular theme and the parade is open to anyone. Use your skill and creative talent to come up with a prize winning entry or just participate for the fun of it. Remember, we are honoring American independence, so get the creative juices flowing. Some things that have special appeal to the judges include: costumes, music, lights, animation and special effects.
Parade participants are requested to muster and register at the north side of the lake. Look for the boat with the Grand Marshal banner to receive your registration number and instructions at 6:00 pm, but NO LATER THAN 6:15 FOR A PROMPT 6:30 BOAT PARADE START.
Merchandise certificates courtesy of Apollo Marine in Lawton and the Lake of the Woods Improvement Association will be awarded to the top 4 boats. We look forward to your participation in making this the best Boat Parade EVER. Please join us. Let’s try and make this the year that will top 2009, when we had 20 boats participate!
PLEASE JOIN US THIS YEAR !!!!!!
