Boat Parade Thanks


Many thanks to all on the FMB Chamber Christmas Boat Parade committee (especially Brent Samuels and Rob Capps), and to all the participants.

We had one of the best parades ever. Salty Sam’s was a great host for the event’s post parade party. Sadly we noted many boats along the way all decorated and not part of the parade. This included many colorful boats at Pink Shell Marina -next year please join us for the festivities, prizes and more. We are also looking at awarding prizes for the most decorated/festive dock party along the parade route in 2017.

If you have any interest in participating in either the actual parade or as a dock party entry, please let the Chamber know. We will call you in the fall to remind you. If you have any suggestions or ideas on how to improve the parade we are all ears. Please email the FMB Chamber of Commerce at

Merry Christmas to all!
