Get your boats ready, polished up and decorated to the hilt.
It’s time again for the Let Freedom Ring Boat Parade at Lake Mexia, sponsored by the Lake Mexia Citizens Association.
This parade takes place every year close to July 4, and this year it will kick off the holiday festivities and be held Saturday, July 2, at 2 p.m. at the Lake Mexia Recreation/Marina area.
Boats will be decorated in patriotic themes and start at the marina, circle the north portion of the lake then return past the marina and circle the south part of the lake, before returning to the marina for judging and awards.
There should be plenty of water in the lake this year so sand bars should not be a problem.
Everyone is welcome, and you don’t have to live at the lake or be an association member to participate.
There will be monetary prizes for first, second and third places, of $75, $50 and $25 respectively.
