2015 Boatnik Parade

We absolutely love this time of year! The weather turns, the rain dries out and the Cavemen come out just in time for the annual Boatnik Celebration.

Every year the Grants Pass Club designs an amazing float that is filled with Club Members who are so excited to participate. It is so much fun to watch them represent the Club with excitement and joy!

This year the theme for our float was “Going Rogue on the Wild and Scenic”. Our Club Members make the most adorable wild animals and hearing them chant “We love the Boys & Girls Club” and “Be Great For Kids” was enough to make anyone smile with pride!

Thank you so much to the Grants Pass Active Club for all of their hard work and their success in making this such a wonderful event for our Club Members and for our community!
