whatever floats your boat parade

Saturday, June 1

11:00 a.m.


For the 2nd year, paddlers design and decorate a non-motorized vessel-be it raft, canoe, inflatable, kayak, or rowboat-and launch at Occoquan Regional Park and paddle along the coastline of town to Occoquan's footbridge to be judged.


Watch the parade at 11:00am from the Ellicott footbridge (near Green shuttle stop) or from the Town Dock, near Mamie Davis Park. Free, no tickets required.
