WARSAW — Honoring first responders is this year’s Lake Tippecanoe Flotilla theme.

These individuals have earned the recognition, according to a news release from Flotilla Chairman Dan Drook. First responders can be seen in all aspects of our life: medical, military, firefighters and law enforcement. They are our neighbors and relatives.

“As an example, within your family, there may be a special person who looked after you. Their heroism makes them a first responder,” the release states.

The 2023 flotilla is an opportunity to show appreciation.

Lake Tippecanoe Property Owners’ (LTPO) goal is to not only have individuals participate, but organizations can participate as a group.

This LTPO event is free. To participate no affiliation to LTPO is required.

Pre-registration is necessary to receive cash rewards. Pre-registration is  July 1 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Patona Bay Snack Shop.

So set sail, decorate your boat and join in the parade beginning lakeside at the Patona Bay Snack Shop at 1 p.m. July 1.

For safety purposes, launching or throwing from shore or water any items is strictly prohibited. The lake patrol will be monitoring the parade route and safety.  The parade will conclude at approximately 2:30 p.m. in front of Patona Bay Snack Shop where prizes will be awarded.
