Every year, to celebrate our nation’s birthday, the PLIA organizes a boat parade around Pawtuckaway Lake on July 4th. People decorate all kinds of boats – from pontoons to kayaks to power boats to jet skis – with patriotic or fanciful themes, and congregate at the north end of the lake for our annual parade.
This year is no exception. At 10:00 AM boats gather at the north end near the Twin Islands, proceed southward in a clockwise direction at 10:30 AM, and then cruise slowly in a circle around the lake as boats fall in line behind the leader.
Of course exuberance is always a part of this celebration, and we encourage it! But please, no water balloons!!! Super soakers are a great way to express your enthusiasm without endangering the health of the lake and our wildlife.
So, haul those decorations, flags, and banners out of storage, and see how colorful you can make your watercraft this year.
Anyone one who captures pictures of the holiday fun at the Boat Parade this year is invited to submit them to: Info@PawtuckawayLake.com. We are always looking for photos of events on the lake to add to our gallery.
And as always – see you on the lake!
