Clever crafts entertain at boat parade
Among the themes that were presented were the All-American Soap Box Derby, which is shown above, and a pirate ship, pictured right. A giant yellow duck, shown below, also attracted attention during the parade, which began at Keiffer Marine and ended at the Portage Lakes State Park beach.
Also taking place that day was the annual sand castle-building contest on the beach. The day concluded with the annual Portage Lakes fireworks display, capping off a holiday weekend for many.
