2013 BLPA Boat Parade a Complete Success!
On December 14, 2013, family and friends gathered at their docks, shorelines, and windows with lakeside views as those boating enjoyed the many decorated yards, docks and boats as they made their way around
At dusk, the megaphone and siren brought attention to the 10 boats participating in the 2013 Boat Parade. Many family, friends, and neighbors cheered as the boats went by wishing everyone holiday fun. An unexpected soaking rain caused a few boats without shelter to drop out of the parade early. Fortunately, it was not before the judging was complete, so rain and all, the parade continued with those with their Bimini tops sheltering them from the rain. We were fortunate to have warm weather so the kids in bathing suits did not mind the rain!
Taking the dock/yard prize was *The Susan Burton family: Susan described her dock as The Zoo, complete with a display of various birds and animal decorations, which included Rudolph on top of the boathouse very neatly done (according to the judge)!
