It begins with the "Gathering of the Fleet!" Boats of all types will gather on Muskegon Lake near the Milwaukee Clipper as they prepare for the Parade of Boats. Then, it's the "Parade of Boats" as vessels follow the Aquastar down the Muskegon Channel towards Lake Michigan to the South Breakwater Cove. Stick around for the "Ceremonial Washing of the Lighthouse." Enjoy the show as the Muskegon County Sheriff Pumper boat, ceremonially washes the South Lighthouse representing the start of the boating season! Then, it's the "Blessing of the Boats" in the South Breakwater Cove as boaters are asked to cruise by the Aquastar for a blessing. For more information, visit www.lakeeffectboating.weebly.com.
