Boater Prizes & Benefits
"..Thanks to the City of Jacksonville for the fantastic Boat Parade and Dock Party. We just moved to Jacksonville last year from south Florida, where we always wanted to participate in a boat parade...We had a really great time and enjoyed participating in the parade with our friends on-board. The fireworks show was amazing, as usual and the Dock Party was more than we expected with great food, lots of nice people, and fun dancing." -Boat #41, Captain Martin
