Blessing of the Fleet boat parade May 2nd.

The 49<sup>th</sup> annual Blessing of the Fleet will happen on Sunday, May 2<sup>nd</sup>. The line-up will start at 1300 and the parade will start at 1400. For more information check out their web site at http://tiny.cc/kjq0v or call Judy Gains at 832-865-0635. The parade will start on the west side of the Kemah Channel and proceed past the Boardwalk into the bay and back. Always a fun event to participate in or just watch. Besides, it can't hurt to have your boat blessed!

Keith,This looks like a hoot. The theme seems to be patriotic. Is this the case?

Technically there is no theme, but there is always a lot of the red, white and blue!

Keith,

That looks like a LOT of fun. Sure makes boating that much more enjoyable when lots of people are participating in an event.


Thanks for sharing!

It was a hoot. I have some shots to post too when I get some time on the laptop. This was our first time, and it seemed like a great crowd.
