This is your weekly reminder that the BV boat parade is coming up soon! We have had several registrations so far and we hope for many more. Remember, it takes boats to have a boat parade! It's a long night, but it is a ton of fun to participate in! Please get with your boat captain, figure out how you want to decorate, and jump in! Info and registration is on http://BVboatparade.com
The parade will start on the Dolphin/Tarpon canal at 6:00 on Saturday, December 11th. There will be an after-party for participants and donors beginning around 9:30 at 284 Barracuda with music, food, drink, and prizes. Captain's meeting will be Wednesday, December 8th at 7:00 pm, location to be determined still.
I know a lot of people plan parties for that night. If your place is toward the end of the route, you might want to try to see it somewhere from the lateral canal or a friend's house earlier. There are a lot of reasons why not everyone will finish the parade. Also, not all boats feel comfortable going all the way to the Neptune end of the canal and will turn around sooner. If you want us to throw candy and beads to your kids, be sure to light up your dock so we can see you.
Any support for the parade will gladly be received! It takes a massive amount of candy to have enough for the whole route. Gift certificates, prizes, liquor, and cash are also accepted. Please leave your donation at one of three locations along with your name so we can properly thank you!
