Celebrate a special holiday lake tradition at our 13th Annual Holiday Flotilla Parade on Lake Lochmere on Sunday, December 16. 

Lochmere residents are invited to join their neighbors at the Lake Lochmere boat ramp at 5:30 PM to sing holiday music led by Lochmere resident Susan Collins. Thank you to Susan for once again leading us in joyous song.  We request that you bring a battery-operated candle or flashlight and form a circle. At 6:00 PM, the Brass Quintet from St. Francis Methodist Church will play holiday tunes while the boats cruise around the shore line of Lake Lochmere.

Boats and crews will begin gathering at Ritter’s dock at 105 Windy Point Lane at 5:15 PM to form the Flotilla Parade. Launch time is 6:00 PM sharp.  If you are launching from the Lochmere Boat Ramp, please give yourself enough time to get to the Ritter's for the 6:00 PM launch.

Decorate your sailboat, canoe, party barge, or kayak and join the floating flotilla circling Lake Lochmere. Invite your family and friends to watch the festively decorated boats circle the lake from your home, dock or the Lochmere dam.
