Again, the theme for this year’s parade is “Just Be Creative” so boaters wishing to participate in the parade can be as creative as they like.
Boat parade entries will be on display in the marina before the parade, which will begin at dusk (approximately 9 pm.). The parade will depart the Port of Dubuque Marina and light up the Mississippi River as it proceeds north along the Mississippi Riverwalk, from the Julien Dubuque Bridge to the railroad bridge near the Dubuque Star Brewery Complex. Spectators choosing to watch the parade from the Mississippi Riverwalk are welcome to bring chairs.
