Frequently Asked Questions:

What Is It?
Each Labor Day, boaters from Bridgeview Harbour Marina light up their boats and motor out onto Lake Champlain providing those on shore a 𝒔𝒑𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒂𝒄𝒖𝒍𝒂𝒓 show before and during the annual Port Henry Labor Day Fireworks.
You can see a map of the parade route Here.

How Does It Work?
Lighted boats and their trusty crews assemble and line up at Bridgeview Harbour Marina and prepare to depart just before dark on the short journey toward the Champlain Bridge.  Once we are just west of the bridge we will turn hard to port, and motor north to an anchorage just south of the Port Henry Pier, where the Moriah Chamber of Commerce's annual Labor Day Fireworks are launched. Boaters will drop anchor, barge up and enjoy the spectacular fireworks show from the best seats in the house!

Where Does It Take Place?
Boats depart from and return from Bridgeview Harbour Marina in Port Henry, NY
