4th Annual TIBM Boat Show and Parade!    

July 15, 2017

Come join us on the River for the 4th Annual Boat Show & Parade at the Thousand Islands Boat Museum.

A collection of boats, old and new, large and small will float past the Museum.

Anyone can be in the parade! Old and New! Big and Small!

Dress up and decorate your boat to win a prize!

Help make the 4th Annual Boat Show and Parade be the best yet by offering a free boat ride to a landlubber (or two or three...).

If you have a boat, register here and take a couple of local residents along for the ride! Let’s give everyone the chance to experience the River!

Local residents who would like a free ride can register here. A ride will be assigned to a parade boat immediately at departure time.

Register your boat (anything that floats counts), welcome your new friends to ride along and enjoy free grub for the Captain and First Mate at the BBQ following the parade! (with Chef Stev George of Casa Bella/Olivea)

We are expecting a great response from boaters and riders, so please register early.
