Boatnik Parade

Downtown Grants Pass is all dressed up for the Memorial Day Week End. Today was the 53rd Annual Boatnik Parade and before that it was known as The Gladiola Festival Parade. It is put on by the Grants Pass Active Club and the purpose of the five day event is to support the local youth in the Rogue Valley. The money made from this event is returned to the children of Josephine County through 4-H Clubs, Boys and Girls Club, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Parks and Rec Department, High School Scholarships, and Athletic Clubs. The Boatnik Event lasts for five days and is considered the kick off to summer fun in the Rogue Valley. Here's to flags and flowers!

    I'm cool enough I am still lighting fires in the woodstove.
