2015 marks the 73rd year for the Annual Hutchinson Jaycee Water Carnival. The Hutchinson Jaycee Water Carnival Committee is looking for participants for this year’s boat parade, which will be held Thursday, June 17th at 7:00pm on the majestic Crow River. Anyone may enter and there is no fee to participate! ALL entries will be eligible to compete for a $250.00 first prize, $175.00 second prize, and $100.00 third prize that will be awarded to the ‘Best Dressed Boats”.
Boats will leave from Roberts Park, progress down the river past Les Kouba Point to the dam, and return on the opposite side. All entries must provide their own boat and must have enough life preservers to accommodate its participants.
Several other fun-filled events will take place along the river that evening so plan to make a night of it! As is tradition, the canoe races will precede the boat parade with a start time of 6:15 p.m.
We would love for YOU to participate in this year’s boat parade. For more information or to register for the boat parade contact Water Events Chair, Betsy Czmowski (320) 583-0608 or visit watercarnival.org.
