What if it rains? The parade will run rain or shine. However, in the interest of safety, upon the issuance of a small watercraft advisory notice from the Coast Guard, the parade would be cancelled for that evening. This decision will be made at 6:00 pm on the day. A message will be posted on the web site at https://mdrboatparade.org in the extremely rare case of the parade being cancelled.

Yes, our local boat charters offer all types of cruises during the parade.
