The Power & Sail Squadron…..What Will Be Number 10?!

Filed under: Arts and Entertainment — Jocko @ 12:12 pm

Suspense is mounting as the local Canadian Power & Sail Squadron prepares their 10th performance-art style parade float for the Fall Fair Parade that begins at 10:30 am on Saturday August 24th.  Arrive by 10 to ensure that you can park and get to a spot to see the parade.

Each year the Squadron draws attention to boating safety with its spirited floats and accompanying mini-skits.  To date they have performed Gilligan’s Island (2003); The Pirates of Thieves Bay (2004); Getting Married to Boating Safety (2005); The Boatcracker Suite (2006); The Titanic (2007);  Popeye (2009);  The Starship Penderprise (2010); Greek Gods present the Safety Dance (2011);   Gilligan’s Reprise (2012) and number 10 for 2013???

Its anyone’s guess, except for Richard Fox and Helen Lemon-Moore who are once again leading the creative CPS team’s efforts for the float.

Be there, and boat safely!  Boating courses start in September.
