4TH OF JULY - Another PERFECT DAY!!!
Thank you to everyone, both on boats and cheering from shore! Your enthusiasm made our celebration exceptional. We had over 32 decorated boats in the parade, many kayaks, and many happy people cheering and waving all the way around the lake.
Our judges were so impressed that they found it very difficult to determine the winners. In fact, they added a 4th winner, honorable mention, to acknowledge the creativity of the SHARK ATTACK! Great job to all of our participants and winners!!!
The boat parade winners were:
1st Place (and leader of next year’s parade) –
The Forrence Family aboard the Pontoon Pirate
2nd Place: Flanagan/Boudreau Families aboard the Renee Marie
3rd Place: Eric Rioux as Elvis and Penny Maxner as Uncle Sam aboard the Beach Bum. Presentation by Dave Blake, CLPA director.
Honorable Mention: the Miller Family aboard the Shark Attack
Special Mention: the Canobie Queen from Canobie Lake Park. On board are Patches (the Teddy Bear) and Timmy (the Shark) along with others.
