Deep Creek Lake Lions Club 11th Annual Boat Parade

Saturday July 6th, 2024

Callin' all Captains! — Decorate your boat and WIN!

The Deep Creek Lions Club 10th Annual Boat Parade will start from the boat launching ramp at Silvertree Marine in McHenry cove and will proceed in single file past a number of judging stations along the route to Dutch’s Restaurant at Silvertree. Spectators at the judging stations will vote for their favorite boats.

Entrants in the parade will need to pay a MINIMUM $50 registration fee, and the number of entries are limited, so be sure to pre-register to ensure your spot. Prizes this year are limited to the custom flag and trophy. All the funds raised benefit our Blind Skier and Camper Programs and our McHenry Community Park.

Non-profit organizations can enter a boat for FREE and can keep all the money they raise!

You can start fundraising for your boat right away! Enter your boat here:
