2019 Casco Bay Summertime Parade of Lights

August 3

The boating community of Casco Bay has partnered with the South Portland Lion’s Club and “Toys for Tots” in participating in a lighted boat parade on the date of August 3, 2019. The mission of the Parade is to stimulate boating activity on Casco Bay by spending creative timedecorating our boats and showing them off to each other and spectators alike in the name of helping others who are less fortunate.

There is an entry fee to participate in this sea side extravaganza of minimally two unwrapped toys per boat. If you are able to carry multiple passengers on your vessel, the more toys are encouraged. The toys will be collected to benefit the charitable organization of “Toys for Tots”. All toys collected will remain local and benefit families within our communities.

Toys For Tots

The mission of the “Toys for Tots” program “is to collect new, unwrapped toys each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.”

Designated toy collection points will be established throughout the area for this event. Please be on the look-out at your local marina, marine chandlery and area business for our Collection boxes.

If one is unable to drop toys off, at one of the pre- designated locations, arrangements may be made to drop toys off at the staging area, prior to the parade. Please contact: Shawn Welch: “Committed II” via VHF Channel 72 or 207-838-5605 for arrangements.
