This year’s Boat Parade will be held on Friday, July 3rd at 5pm. All participating boaters and kayakers are invited to decorate their craft and line-up at Bird Island at 4:30pm. The boats will navigate south to the Queen’s Folly bridges, then east behind the corridor ending at the PD Club. If you aren’t participating by boat, head over to one of our bridges for the best view of our parade. If you would like to participate by boat or kayak, please email Julia Burnett at firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many boats to expect.
On Saturday, July 4th, take a moment to bring your friends, families, and guests to our Annual Flag Raising Ceremony at 9am in the center of the Queen’s Folly Circle. You won’t want to miss this special event unique to Palmetto Dunes featuring a local Color Guard, the Pledge of Allegiance, the singing of the National Anthem and guest speaker Grover Cleaveland. The ceremony is brief—about 20 minutes—but is an important part of the day’s celebrations.
