2006 Christmas Boat Parade!
December 16, 2006
The decorating contest selected winners for the following five categories:
After the a viewing for the judges everyone toured the lake to show off all the skilled splendor for each other and the lakefront land lovers. Then after the parade, the prize ceremony was held. See the pictures below for some of the very imaginative decorations.
Prizes for the contests were provided by generous area businesses. Winners received a decorative flag for their vessel to show off ‘til next year!
Many thanks to Don and his great staff for organizing this special event!
