Residents from Suffield and Southwick, Mass., gathered around Congamond Lake's Middle Pond on July 6 to celebrate the Fourth of July with a "Red, White, and Blue"-themed boat parade. Before boaters lined up along Babb's Beach, Suffield personality Traci Mnich sang the national anthem.
A pontoon boat with an American flag hanging in the stern began the parade. The other boats followed, some enjoying the ride while waving to on-lookers, while others chose to entertain with water balloons, squirt guns and trumpet-playing.
Those who watched from Southwick, Mass., were able to get cooled off by the water fun from participants driving past the pier near Louie B's.
