4th of July Boat Parade
July 4, 2020:
We are excited to announce that the Sandbridge Fourth of July Boat Parade is returning this year on (drum roll, please) Saturday, July 4. This year’s theme is “Pandemic on the High Seas.” There will be four awards:
- American Heroes-honoring those on the front lines
- Still Afloat-funniest
- United We Stand-most patriotic
- Epidemic Adventure-general, best boat
Boats will meet in Osprey Bay (behind Teal Crescent) at 6:30 p.m. where we will collect your information. The boat parade starts at 7:00 p.m. traveling through the canals behind Bluebill and Wood Duck before going into Mill Pond. The judging will be at Pat and Amy Barton’s at 308 Back Bay Crescent on the south end of Mill Pond.
If you have any questions, please call Ken Leach at 916-261-1195. See you on the water!
