On July 9 a flotilla of boats and ships will parade from the Ballard Locks into Lake Union in celebration of the centennial of the opening of Ship Canal. The Centennial Boat Parade will roughly re-create the original parade that marked the official opening of the Canal on July 4, 1917. Come on down and see storied vessels such as the S/V Adventuress, the yachts Honey Boy and Glory Be, the Virginia V, the halibut schooner Tondenskjold, and others. We will post the final list of vessels, and additional details, closer to the date.
If you are interested in entering your boat in the parade, find instructions and an application form here.
