The parade committee would like to remind participants and spectators to protect our coastal wetlands and refrain from littering during this event. Boat and dock decorating participants are asked to avoid incorporating elements into their design that involves throwing objects into the water, including water balloons, which pollute the environment and are harmful to the local wildlife.
