Annual Boat Parade

Its not too early to start planning!!!!   Please see the following about the July 4th SBPOA Boat Parade:

SBPOA’s Boat Parade - Boat Parade Information 

The SBPOA Boat Parade will be held on Thursday, July 4th (that’s right - actually on the 4th of July!).
Boats will line up in Jefferson Creek by 4:45 pm and the parade will begin at 5:00 pm. 

To register for the boat parade, email with the following information: your name, SB address, length and type of boat. Joe will then assign you a number. You must register by Monday, July 1st to guarantee a spot in the parade. 


1) You will be responsible for making your own boat number. Make sure the number is at least 6”x6” and there is a number on each side of your boat. It must clearly be seen from shore. You will be assigned your number when you register with Joe. 

2) Use the time before the parade to find the boat you will follow. It will be one number lower than yours.
3) The boats will first proceed down Jefferson Creek canal. (It’s the one parallel to Canal Road.)
4) A kayaker at the entrance to the canal will be in charge of ordering and spacing the boats. He will tell you when to proceed.
5) After that, follow the boat in front of you until we return to Jefferson Creek at the end of the parade. 
6) Keep a safe distance from the boat in front of you! 
7) We will have judges awarding boats for a variety of awards, including: Most Patriotic, Most Original, Most Enthusiastic Crew, Funniest Boat and Best in Show.
8) You will be notified by email if you have won an award. We will be giving out the awards at the Town Hall on Friday, July 5th at  9:00 am all are invited to attend.
