The Boat Parade!! 07/18/2009

Good Morning!
Now on to the 34th Annual Queechy Lake Boat Parade
The Parade began in 1976 for the Bicentennial Celebration and has remained a tradition ever since!
Of course, You saw our boat...
Here are some of the others...
Although, we did proudly win a plaque, "Rescue on the Hudson" in this last picture, won "Best in Parade". I loved the concept...however, personally, I thought the first plane was even had working propellers!
Even Granny (my nephew Alex) didn't care for the results...Hahaha!
On a personal note, this is my son Rudy and his lovely girlfriend Ruthie. Ruthie played Ellie Mae Clampett and helped me for hours to create our Hillbilly boat. They have been a couple for 3 years now, and will both turn 20 in September.
Hope you enjoyed the boat parade! We had great fun, and are thinking of a spectacular idea for next year...As you can see, the competition can be fierce!
Have a great day~

Cathy I agree with you the first plane is so much better and even though it was simple I liked the viking boat too. It must be those horned helmets they wear... LOL. :)

I am so impressed with the boat parade. I think it is wonderful that everyone puts so much energy to make it such a joy. Thanks for showing us something we would not have had the pleasure of seeing otherwise.
