Blessing of the Boats

May 25 - May 26

Sunday, May 26, join the Aquastar and Lake Effect Boating for the 14th Annual Blessing of the Boats!  It begins with the “Gathering of the Fleet!”  Boats of all types will gather on Muskegon Lake near the Milwaukee Clipper as they prepare for the Parade of Boats.  Then, it’s the “Parade of Boats” as vessels follow the Aquastar down the Muskegon Channel towards Lake Michigan to the South Breakwater Cove.  Stick around for the “Ceremonial Washing of the Lighthouse.”  Enjoy the show as the Muskegon County Sheriff Pumper boat, ceremonially washes the South Lighthouse representing the start of the boating season!  Then, it’s the “Blessing of the Boats” in the South Breakwater Cove as boaters are asked to cruise by the Aquastar for a blessing.  For more information, visit www.lakeeffectboating.weebly.com.  If you would like to participate aboard the Aquastar, contact them by calling (231) 903-0669.  They will provide a light lunch and a cash bar.
