Celebrating America at Lewes boat parade

July 4, 2019

The Lewes Fourth of July Boat Parade brought out more than a dozen patriotic vessels, each decorated from bow to stern in red, white and blue. 

Taking the grand prize was JR Squared, whose crew made the pontoon look like a steam paddle boat. First place went to Happy Our’s, whose large crew dressed to the nines in patriotic gear, including a Lady Liberty. 

Second place went to Capt. Jason King’s Moon Dog, while third place went to Miss Maggie of Capt. Dean Johnson. 

A special honorable mention award was given to Hilda Adams and Matt Grieg, dressed as Caesar Rodney and his horse. Adams rowed by herself from Roosevelt Inlet to Fisherman’s Wharf into the current with a strong headwind.
