The Third Annual Douglas Lake Boat Parade 2014


The Third Annual Douglas Lake Boat Parade took place on Friday, July 4th.  The theme was “The Fourth of July” and raised money for “Angel Ambassadors”.  The DLB provided judges and prizes again, along with food and beverages at a nominal charge. Grabbing first place with a modified Huck Finn was the "Miss Esther".


Once again in 2015, Kathy Buchweitz and Marilyn Kelemen will be leading the planning committee for the Fourth Annual Douglas Lake Boat Parade. Contact them if you could help out or offer suggestions for improving the event.
