Deep Creek Lake Lions hosting annual boat parade

From WVNEWS

DEEP CREEK LAKE —The Deep Creek Lake Lions Club will hold its seventh annual Boat Parade on Saturday, July 7, starting from McHenry Cove and ending at Dutch’s at Silver Tree.

Registration will start around 6 p.m. with the grand marshal’s boat anchored in McHenry Cove. The minimum entry fee is $50 for individuals and nonprofits; $100 for businesses.

The parade of decorated boats will get underway around dusk (about 7 p.m.) and proceed single file past four judging stations along the route.

Onshore spectators can “vote” for their favorite boats by placing cash in the matching cup for each boat’s number at the Creamery, Dutch’s and Uno’s. In addition, the Lions Club boat will follow the parade and collect donations dockside.

At the end location of the parade, all of the votes will be counted. The boat that raises the most money will receive a grand prize, a custom-designed winner’s pennant and trophy.

Runners-up in various categories will receive donated prizes (gift cards, baskets, etc.)

Around 9 p.m., lighted boats will proceed back to McHenry Cove.

Funds raised benefit the DCL Lions Club’s Blind Skier and Camper programs. Other nonprofit organizations that enter a boat can keep all the money they raise.

More information can be obtained by calling Chris Nichols at 301-616-7881 or visiting deepcreeklions.org/Boat-Parade.html.
