LAKEWOOD – A rally showing support for President Donald Trump took place Sunday on Chautauqua Lake.
Dubbed ‘Boatin and Votin,’ the event is organized by Lakewood residents Greg Carr and Cindy Watson.
Watson says they were inspired by similar events nationwide.
“(We) have seen some of the boat parades around the United States and we got really excited about it and thought we would have one on the lake, and get the patriotism going for our President and law enforcement,” said Watson. “It worked out very well.”
Around 100 boats joined the parade, with hundreds lining the lake in support of the Commander-in-chief. Additionally, skydivers took part in the festivities.
Watson says her group sold 300 raffle tickets to offset costs associated with the skydivers and music DJ.
A pervious gathering also drew hundreds from the community to the waterway.
