Boat Parade?????????

What happened? I too enjoy the boat parade EVERY SINGLE YEAR!!!! I too am part of a gathering in which my grandmother, son, father, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins and friends. This is an annual thing that we have been lucky to take a part in for several years now. Is lack of participation going to stop our happiness? Why doesn't someone post in the newspaper that there are boats needed to participate? What about donating money to buy lights and decorations to be reused every year by boats that feel festive and would like to participate?

Every year we have dinner, watch the boats and then drive around town checking out the Christmas lights. Please folks, spread the word to participate, show the people who host this thing that we are worth the beauty of this festive parade and excitement. If we let Ketchikan fall, it will fall hard and take no mercy on those who see Ketchikan as it is....... a home to many.
