The Lake Forest Keys will again host the annual boat parade on Saturday, December 13 this year.
We will start with a social hour at the amphitheater beginning about 5:30, then plan to start the parade around the the lake at 6:30.
If you need lights, I just saw the low voltage lights in different colors and sizes at Costco last week for less than $14 per 100 light string. These lights hardly use any of your battery power, so it may be worth it to upgrade if you have the old lights. (They had a good supply, but you never know when they will run out!)
Please give me a call or email to let me know if you are entering your boat. I’m hoping to get some prizes for various categories, and it’s always nice to know how many boats to expect in the line up.
As long as you are decorating for the parade, please consider volunteering your boat to take people out on tours on one or both Friday nights (the 12th, and the 19th). This is a fund raiser for Toys for Tots. Last year, we raised $200 for this, but with better advance planning (and no rain!) we are hoping to collect $500 this year. It’s a worthy cause, and there are many non-lake front neighbors who are willing to pay to support this. Please let me know if you will be willing to bring your decorated boat and participate. Call me at (949) 457-0281 or email Vicki@VickiLloyd.com.
Alisa, at the Sun & Sail Club, will be taking reservations for anyone who wants to ride around the lake those evenings for a donation of $5 per person. You may call her at (949)586-0860 x-29, or visit her recreation website where she will have a sign up form available soon.
