It's one of the best days on Prior Lake! My friends at The Knotty Oar Marina help put on The Boat Parade in the early afternoon.....friends and families decorate their boats & pontoons while parading around the lake. Then later that evening fireworks are shot off Lakefront Beach. There is nothing more spectacular then sitting on a boat, in the middle of the lake, and watching one of the best fireworks shows!
