This is the 22nd Annual Johns Lake Boat Parade and with each passing year, boaters and residents alike look forward to this very special holiday event.
There is no registration required to participate in the parade. All that is needed is to decorate your boat, be in place for “line up” no later than 6:10pm and be prepared to show some holiday spirit as we motor around the lake!
Throughout the years, the residents have shown their appreciation for the parade by hosting gatherings, cheering loudly from the docks/shores, and making sure the boat parade participants know just how much their boat-décor is appreciated!
Johns Lake Association will continue to post more details over the coming months, including how to prepare your boat for holiday lights/decorations.
