Cannons Marina will offer a $500 prize for most patriotic business entry.
Longboat Key’s annual Freedom Fest will take place July 4, and residents and visitors will enjoy a quarter-mile parade followed by a celebration in Bicentennial Park.
New to the parade this year, David Miller, owner of Cannons Marina, will be offering a $500 prize for the most patriotic business entry in the parade.
Last year’s parade had just three business floats, and for the $500 prize to be awarded, there must be at least 10 business entries.
If you or your business would like to participate in the parade, call the Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce, 383-2466.
