6th Annual Lighted Boat Parade

The Port of Dubuque Marina will hold its sixth annual lighted boat parade on Friday, August 3rd. Boaters are invited to participate in, and the public is invited to attend. Dan Kroger, Recreation Division Manager, says this free, family-friendly event will begin at 6 p.m. with a free musical performance by the Mississippi Band and other activities before the evening parade. The theme for this year’s parade is “Just Be Creative” so boaters wishing to participate in the parade can be as creative as they like. According to Kroger, boat parade entries will be on display in the marina before the parade, which will begin at dusk. Kroger says the event is always popular with families and the City of Dubuque Leisure Services Department’s “Rec ‘n Roll” Trailer will be on site with a variety of activities for children. Boats of all makes, models, and sizes are encouraged to participate and prizes will be awarded. To register a boat for the parade, or for more information, please contact the Port of Dubuque Marina. Spectators choosing to watch the parade from the Mississippi Riverwalk are welcome to bring chairs.
