Boast the Coast Boat Parade Call for Entries

OCTOBER 3, 2015 - 4 PM

The 20th Annual Boast the Coast maritime festival takes place around the water in Lewes on Saturday, October 3 from 10 am until 5 pm. The culmination of the maritime-themed activities associated with the festival is the popular Boat Parade at the same time as last year - 4 p.m.  Registered boats line up at the Roosevelt Inlet between 3:15 and 3:30 p.m. and wind their way down the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal arriving at Fisherman’s Wharf at approximately 4 p.m. Spectators can view the parade of decorated boats from anywhere along the canal from Roosevelt Inlet to the drawbridge next to Fisherman’s Wharf. The judges’ reviewing stand will be at the City Dock next to 1812 Park.

It does not cost anything for boat owners to enter the parade. First, Second & Third Place entries will receive ribbons and there will be a cash prize for the Best Decorated Entry. The boats should be decorated in whatever theme the owners want.

 To register, boat owners can pick up entry forms at the Lewes Chamber of Commerce visitor center in the Fisher-Martin House next to the Zwaanendael Museum or call 645-8073 to have one mailed or e-mailed.
