Canaan, N.Y.: Queechy Lake Boat Parade slated Saturday
The Queechy Lake Club Inc. will hold its 38th annual Boat Parade at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 5.
Lake residents decorate their boats to compete for plaques including "Best Overall," "Most Outlandish," "Most Humorous," "Most Imaginative," and "The Muscle Builder" for the best un-powered entry.
Movies, current events, children’s stories and spoofs on people the news are often the theme of many entries.
The Boat Parade follows the lake shore and is best viewed from Queechy Lake Drive, County Route 30 that runs between routes 295 and 22 along the lake.
Through the generosity of the Adam’s Point Beach Club, the awards ceremony will be held on the beach once the boats have been reviewed by the parade judges.
