Parade your boat in the Onset Bay Blessing of the Fleet, or become spectator, and watch the parade from the Onset Pier while taking in all the festivities. The parade begins at 11 a.m.
Participating boaters will parade their vessel on a route that will form between the islands near red nun 14, then proceed inbound to the face of the Onset Pier, where the boat will be blessed by a local priest. Decorate your boat to win a prize for best dressed vessel and crew.

After the Blessing, children of all ages can participate in a Pet Parade, Doll Carriage Parade or Bicycle Parade. Sign up sheets will be made available that morning on the Pier. Awards will be given for best presentation.
