Fun flotilla this Sunday w/ Milwaukee Riverkeeper's Boat Parade
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- If you're on the Milwaukee River this Sunday, there's a good chance you'll need to make way for an annual event happening in the middle of the day. From noon until 2 p.m., the annual "Milwaukee Riverkeeper Boat Parade" will take place, starting at the turning basin at the Port of Milwaukee, going to Holton Street, and then returning. Local artists and performers will once again showcase their talents with one-of-a-kind art installation floats. Thirteen to be exact. There will be plenty of safe space to view the flotilla along the riverwalk. Organizers say beside the fun, the day is all about recognition of a great natural resource right outside our door.
Again, the event runs from noon until 2 p.m. along the Milwaukee River. And if you don't want to watch it in person because of the pandemic, you have virtual options as well. Click here to see how and also find out more about the big fall D-I-Y river cleanup happening in September.
