Ventnor’s Go Green Boat Parade, Fireworks, NJ’s Tall Ship- Weekend Happenings
There is one requirement for Saturday's 8th annual Nights in Ventnor Go Green Boat Parade; human-powered vessels only. No motors, no batteries, no fuel-powered crafts - just people-powered contraptions allowed.
But Saturday's parade on Ventnor's back bay is perfect for kayaks, paddle-boards, canoes, or that old row boat of yours.
The Go Green Boat Parade has a real party atmosphere and you're invited to watch and cheer on the green boaters. The festivities launch at Ski Beach, Dorset Avenue on the Ventnor Bay Saturday, August 6 from 5-8p.
