I am just putting out a call to everyone for any assistance you can help with in getting people to participate in the Annual Lighted Boat Parade this year. Remember this is a nonprofit, volunteer effort so every little bit helps keep the event going.
We are asking Parade boats (with lights) for this Saturday to meet up just before sunset, at the mouth of Jones Creek on the Annisquam River. They check in with a committee boat and pick up a number, if they want to be judged by the judges. Then we parade the boats down the river, through the bridge, past the Man on the Wheel and the judges boat, into the inner harbors and back to the main harbor for the Fireworks. We continue to get low boat attendance, and need everyone to reach out through your avenues for participation. Including your Facebook pages etc. This has been a great tradition for the North Shore, Gloucester, as well as a nice complement to the Schooner Festival.
Please send this link along if you email your groups for pre-registration of the parade. Pre-registration is not a requirement, but helpful.
Its FREE and need boats!
Pass this email along- forward to friends with boats, it all helps!
Any questions, please let me know.
