Occoquan’s “Whatever Floats Your Boat” parade will be held on Saturday, June 1 at 10 a.m.

Love the water? Get creative, decorate a vessel, and take off in the 2nd Annual Whatever Floats Your Boat Parade during RiverFest and Craft Show! Register now!

Design and decorate a river vessel that expresses your creativity– be it raft, canoe, inflatable, dinghy, kayak, rowboat or other non-motorized craft. Get creative and pick a fun, topically, or pop culture theme for your boat AND you (costumes are encouraged!).

Participants will launch from Occoquan Regional Park and paddle or row their vessel along the coastline of town to Occoquan’s footbridge to be judged.

One winner is awarded a prize in each of the following categories:

  • Most Likely to Sink
  • Most Enthusiastic
  • Best Eco-Float
  • Funniest
  • Most Creative
  • Best Overall

Registration for the parade is $45 per vessel. Businesses interested in participating become sponsors of the event. The fee for businesses is $150. All teams must register by May 27, 2024.

The greater portion of registration fees goes toward Occoquan’s Million Mighty Mussel Project in partnership with Potomac RiverKeeper Network. Register your vessel now!
