2nd Annual Parade of Boats Night Award Winners

The votes are in!

Thank you to all of our Parade boaters who joined us this past Friday for the 2nd Annual Parade of Boats Night! The evening was a huge success and we’ve received wonderful feedback from fellow boaters, onboard guests and those who attended the official onshore viewing party along the Fremont Cut.

Thanks also go to all those onshore guests who cheered the parade on from Westward to the Ballard Bridge. This event would not be the success that it is without the support of our community.
