Boat Parade Entries Wanted 14 May 13

2013 marks the 71st year for the Annual Hutchinson Jaycee Water Carnival.

Right now, the Water Carnival Committee is looking for participants for this year’s boat parade, which will be held Thursday, June 13th at 7:00pm on the majestic Crow River.

Anyone can enter and there is no fee to participate and all entries will be eligible to compete for a $300.00 first prize, $200.00 second prize, and $100.00 third prize that will be awarded to the ‘best dressed boats.

Boats will leave from Roberts Park, progress down the river past Les Kouba Point to the dam, and return on the opposite side. All entries must provide their own boat and must have enough life preservers to accommodate its participants.

Several other fun-filled events will take place along the river that evening so organizers say you should plan to make a night of it. As is tradition, the canoe races will precede the boat parade with a start time of 6:15 p.m.
