Perfect weather greeted the 6th annual Friends of Lake Pocotopaug Dennis Griswold Showboat Parade this year. Hundreds of spectators viewed the flotilla of strange watercraft as the made their way around the lake.
This year the likes of Bob Hope’s USO Girl’s, Scooby Doo, The Munsters, Racing cars, Police Cars, and even an Ice Cream Truck competed in being the best float of he parade. Not to be out done, and staying with current events, the Spencer Funeral Home sponsored the likes of a BP skimmer pontoon boat. Adorned with plastic brown water fowl, yellow haz-mat suits, and many cans of
cold liquid dispersent, this clean-up crew hoped for a big win! They have my vote!
Here are some images from this great yearly event in East Hampton, Connecticut.
Bob Hope would be proud!
