You…. light up my life…Vermilion Chamber of Commerce.

The Fish Festival arrives this weekend and with it fireworks off of Vermilion’s breakwall. Both of these events are brought to you by the Vermilion Chamber of Commerce which can be found here on the web, and here on facebook. Their will be many festivities downtown on Mainstreet as visitors and locals alike take in the festival celebrating Lake Erie’s Fishing bounty. In fact, it even comes with a Crazy Craft race and a lighted boat parade. Details on the links above.

What this means for your whole crew is a great opportunity to view fireworks from your boat. Now their will be some river traffic considerations to be aware of. If your planning on boating Friday after dusk you should take the time to read the announcement below.

Now we get to celebrate and enjoy the very freedom so many have fought so hard for.

The Sun is out, the temps are pleasant, and we are launching boats to make sure your at the dock and ready for the approaching Memorial Day Weekend.  One after the other you can slowly see the marina filling up in anticipation of some well deserved time to relax at the dock.

Not to apply to much “Pier” pressure.. but.

If you are one of those Captains who has still not decided on a course of action, now is the right time. Just stop  by the marine store/office and lets us steer you in the right direction. You don’t want your ship stuck on land when all the rest are making a big splash. Just a reminder, there is only one week of launch left before Memorial Weekend.

In the meantime, we will be getting the Marina, Pool, and Putter Port ready for your arrival.
