Get ready for the 30th Annual 4th of July Boat Parade Celebration! Sign up to be a part of this fun, patriotic celebration, or just sit back and enjoy the show. The parade will start at Bomb Island. Once boats have fallen in line behind the lead boat, the parade will head towards the Lake Murray Dam. The parade will pass both the Lexington and Irmo parks at Lake Murray Dam - both perfect for viewing from land.
