Freedom Floats Boat Parade presented by Freedom Boat Club
July 4 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Celebrate American Freedom In Style! This year on July 4th, freedom-loving boaters will celebrate life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness with an All-American Boat Parade Presented by Freedom Boat Club passing the Official Judging at Plant Riverside between 3:30 and 5pm.
Boaters use promo code WATERFRONT to get 50% off registration fees.
Boats will muster near Elba Island in the south channel of the Savannah River at 3pm so we avoid container ships then move together in formation around Elba Island’s north side and continue to parade in front of Plant Riverside District and Savannah’s Waterfront.
People’s Choice voting raises funds for your favorite charity through the Savannah Harbor Foundation. We’ll donate an additional $250 to your charity if you get the most People’s Choice votes!
