“Ahoy On The Ohio” Boat Parade
Friday After 5 – July 22nd
Friday After 5 Executive Director, Kirk Kirkpatrick, says boats have always been a part of the fun at Friday After 5. Boaters love to anchor down and float within earshot of the bands. The first “Ahoy On The Ohio” lighted boat parade will launch on Friday, July 22nd at Friday After 5
Kela Hall, with Hall Marine, is coordinating the boat parade. It is free for participants, and all boats are welcome as long as they register and pick up a number, but they are encouraged to turn their lights on and decorate if they want to. Hall says several boaters are excited about decorating possibly with some TV show themes, summer beach themes, and luau themes.
All boats should line-up at English Park by 7:30 pm and leave at 7:45 pm to travel toward the bridge about 8 pm. The FA5 emcee on the RiverPark Center patio stage will announce each boat and explain their decoration theme as the boats float by the RiverPark patio stage. All boats who register ahead of time are eligible to win the coveted Friday After 5 “Ahoy Trophy.”
