3rd Annual LLCA 4th of July Lotus Lake Boat Parade 
In 2018, our theme was "The Great Lotus Lake Get Together: MN State Fair Inspired" which brought out many creative and fun boats celebrating the 4th and many more watching off the water. Thank you to everyone that came out between thunderstorms!

The 3rd Annual LLCA Lotus Lake Boat Parade "Golden Oar" Winner by popular vote: #33 "Sweet Martha's / Giant Slide" based in our 2018 theme with honorable mentions to the "Enterprise" and "Miracle of Barn Birth" boats.

As a recap from 2017, our theme was "Patriotic Minnesota" - showing us all what celebrating the 4th in Minnesota is all about.  A hard job for the judges as participants were narrowed down to five finalists for the "Golden Oar".  

  • "Military Tank" boat with it's amazing sound effects, smoke, and kickback when firing
  • "Fireworks" boat with a 4th of July cookout and creative pool noodle fireworks
  • "Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island" boat with the stately lady herself and a cute immigrants ready to swear in
  • "Up North" boat with a bonfire, pine trees, and a wonderful loon in tow; 
And the 2017 Winner - the "Target Field" Boat which featured a baseball game with batters hitting ice balls into the lake and an amazing replica of Target Field.
