Provincetown Costumed Boat Parade set for August 6th
Flyer's Boat Rental wants to sponsor a costumed boat parade along the shore of
Provincetown harbor next summer and hopes that this may become an annual event.
The route would leave from Flyer's in the West End of town, move past the Boatslip
during Teadance, continue past the Pied and around Fisherman's Wharf into the Inner
Harbor. Tentatively scheduled for August 6th, 1999 at 6 PM with a rain date of
August 7th this should be a treat for the whole town.
Costumed participants can join the parade with their own power or sailboats, kayaks
or canoes or can sign on to one of several decorated boats that Flyer's will provide
for the event, including the 14 passenger pontoon boat 'Party Barge'. If you want
to use your own boat, remember the route is shallow and the boats must be able to move slowly.
Rex McKinsey, Flyer's Dockmaster, has worked extensively on Mardi Gras
parades in New Orleans and will make several figureheads this winter to
decorate boats including mermaids, dragons and muscle men.
Says Rex, "Would you like to come play with us? We're looking for costumed
riders, decorators, designated drivers, set-up and safety crews. Perhaps
you would like to organize a synchronized kayak team or sculling crew,
design a poster or coordinate tie-in events."
Flyer's is looking for people to start working on theme, routes, sponsors
and event organization. Just email or call Rex at 508-487-0518.
