Please come and enjoy our colorful display of "lighted boats" closing out a GREAT day at the Hunter's Moon Festival in Grand Rivers! This is your dream chance to compete with other boaters by adding creative lighting to your boat. And onlookers will enjoy your efforts as we float by in the early darknessů
Our Lighted Boat Parade's path meanders from its starting point on the west side of Kentucky Dam in the area close to the entrance to Kentucky Dam Marina at 6:30 pm, crosses Kentucky Lake, floats past Lighthouse Landing (which is a GREAT viewing opportunity for the public!), glides through the canal and back up to Green Turtle Bay Resort, and drops anchor at its final stop at The Thirsty Turtle. Various boats will be "decked" out with lights for you and your family's viewing enjoyment. When the parade is over, please join us at The Thirsty Turtle for some good food and beverages!
