An awesome Fourth of July is on its way!
Two long-standing summertime traditions return to Lake Martin on July 4. Enjoy the color and the spectacle and make the most of our Independence Day at the lake!
Fourth of July Boat Parade
Sponsored by Russell Marine
Tuesday, July 4, 10am
It’s a long-time Lake Martin tradition, and it seems to grow every year. Scores of boats will again parade from Kowaliga to Children’s Harbor in a festive and patriotic holiday display. Local veterans will occupy the lead boat in the parade.
Prizes will be awarded for Tallest Flag, Largest Flag, Most Creative Theme and Most Patriotic Crew. Two prizes will be awarded in each category. First prize is a $150 Russell Marine gift certificate, and second prize is a $75 gift certificate. And new this year, Best Overall Boat and Crew will receive $500 in cash!
Get your crew together to decorate your boat, or enjoy the colorful parade from the shore. Call Kowaliga Marina at 334.857.2111, use the form below or stop by any marina to register today.
