Annual Boat Parade

SBPOA BOAT PARADE - July 4th is very special in South Bethany. The highlight of our celebration is our famous Fourth of July Boat Parade.  This year (2023) it is scheduled for Sunday, July 2 with July 3 as a rain date.  Many of our residents decorate their boats and follow our ‘grand master’ Kent Stephan parading around several of our canals. Categories for the boats include ‘most Patriotic’, ‘most Creative’, ‘Christmas in July’, and pretty much anything else that folks can think up.  We will send a note to SBPOA members in early June with information on how to sign up and where to collect their boat numbers. For safety reasons, we are limiting the number of boats this year, so sign up early!
