First Blessing of The Fleet, 1972
Blessing Weekend Sponsorship Opportunities and Overview
The Blessing of the Fleet is a spectacularly colorful event featuring a parade of decorated commercial and recreational watercraft, large and small. Local clergymen bless each and every vessel as they pass before them, and a panel of judges rate the decorations in a variety of categories.
- Come on down to the Breachway and cheer on the parade as the boats are blessed! On a good day, hundreds of vessels line up to parade past thousands of spectators.
