Essex Harbor Boat Parade Kicks Off at 1pm Today


ESSEX — The boating community around Essex, Conn., will once again gather today to celebrate Independence Day at the annual 4th of July Essex Harbor Boat Parade. Boat owners are invited to “dress up” their boats and join the parade. Meet near green marker 25 outside the harbor at 12:45 p.m. and monitor Channel 71 for instructions.

The parade will kick off at 1 p.m. and will pass the Essex harborfront several times.

If you do not own a boat, why not watch the parade from the shore?

For more information and to participate, contact Steve Rodstrom, Vice Commodore of the Essex Corinthian Yacht Club at
