THE ANNUAL FOOLS’ FLOTILLA: It’s a floating parade, a neighborhood party, a chance to show your love for the river.
This year’s event took place on Sunday, June 8th, 2014
Thank you to Ray Pfeiffer and Gina Bower of Komifoto for the wonderful images here!
The Fools’ Flotilla is hosted by the River Alliance of Wisconsin
Once a year, the small but mighty Yahara running through our urban neighborhood turns in to a celebration of water, art and music! Put on a costume. Dress up your boat, your kids, and the dog, too. Bring some instruments and play along with the floating bands!
The parade floats from the dam at Lake Mendota, under 9 bridges, to Yahara Place Park, where you’ll find all your neighbors hanging out at the Marquette Waterfront Festival.
