The parade is the Strathmere Fishing and Environmental Club's biggest fund raiser of the year, and always a barrel of fun!
It's not just for people on the bay! There will be awards for boats, houses on the bay and houses off the bay.
Register your boat or house at the old Corson's Inlet Marina (Bayview & Putnam) at 7:00 pm Friday night or in front of Twisties on Saturday afternoon.
Please plan to buy raffle tickets (ten for $10 - first prize $1000; 2nd: $300; 3rd: $200) and Nightmare tee shirts (with the design above).
Raffle Tickets are on sale this week at Frank's and Whale Creek; Tee Shirts on Bayview at Putnam and both will be on sale outside Twisties on Saturday afternoon.
Twelve local authors are scheduled to attend. They’ll discuss their books which include novels, memoirs, historical nonfiction, biography, children and young adult.
Tickets ($25 per person) may be obtained from any Fire Company Member or by calling (609) 780-7083. A ticket includes:
The tournament is open to all children age 17 and under (kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult), so bring your children and grandchildren! They need to bring their own fishing rod and tackle (pyramid weights only, please).
