Fish River Christmas Boat Parade

12/20/2014
Big Daddy’s Grill on Ferry Road (off of Highway 32)

Details

The boat parade is Dec. 20 and will start at the U.S. 98 bridge at about dusk and go upriver to the Baldwin County 32 bridge. The parade should be passing thru Big Daddy’s (16542 Ferry Rd. in Fairhope) cove around 7 p.m. Big Daddy’s will also host the post parade party, where best decorated boat awards will be presented.Newsom said a record 37 boats participated last year and he expects close to that number to parade on Dec. 20. “People all up and down the river started callingme back in June and July to ask what the date was so they could plan their parties,’’ Newsom said. “There will be people all along the river hooting and hollering, the boat captains love it.’’Big Daddy’s will donate a portion of its cash register to the Marlow Fire Dept. Chelsea Garvin memorial Fund.Chelsea, a member of the Fish River Marlow Volunteer Fire Department, was killed when she and two other volunteer firefighters were returning from boat parade standby duty to their launch site in the department’s 15-foot rescue boat about an hour after the conclusion of the 2005 parade. the boat collided head-on with another vessel, which was operating without proper lighting equipment. Chelsea and another firefighter were thrown into the water. Chelsea was transported to the hospital by LifeFlight andheld in intensive care. she was removed from life support 5 days later.in addition to the Fire Department Chelsea Garvin memorial Fund, Chelsea was honored on the National Fallen Firefighters memorial in Emmitsburg, Maryland.In addition, since 2006, the Original Oyster house has sponsored two $1,000 Chelsea Garvin spirit award scholarships in her honor.Chelsea, who graduated with honors in 2004 from Fairhope high school, was an Original Oyster house employee and an artist. The scholarship winners reflect Chelsea’s spirit in their artwork.”Through Chelsea’s scholarship, seniors of Baldwin County can experience that through art you can serve others, evoke emotions, communicate to the masses, memorialize an amazing spirit, lift up your family, friends and peers and in this scenario, help pay for your college education,” said OOH marketing director CeciliaMace.Applications for participation in the Dec. 20 Fish River Boat Parade are
available at Big Daddy’s, according to big Daddy’s owner and parade
organizerJason Newsom.
