BV Boat Parade Participant

Charlie Melancon's boat with decoration help from neighbors Judy & Christi Hayez



1st Place - Kirk & Terry Howard

Boat was all decorated, then put into the water but the steering was locked up.
(I bet it sure looked nice at the boat ramp though!)

2nd Place - Michael Bausman

Decorated to the max but the generator blew----could not handle the lights.
(...or the Blender or the Jambox)

3rd Place - Richard Brooks

Blew out a tire on his boat trailer on the way to putting it in the water.
(Best looking boat on the pavement, though!)

BV Salt Water Garden Club judged the house decorations
for 2000 the night of the boat parade Dec. 16th.
