Grants Pass, Ore.--  Boatnik celebrations continued Saturday with the annual parade.

Thousands gathered for one of the main highlights of the 55th annual event.

100 floats strolled through 6th street in downtown and people said it's a parade they wouldn't want to miss.

"Who could miss Boatnik ..the kids, the floats, the candy, its great," said Jeff Pelson.

"Yeah it's great. I come from a small town in Dallas and we have a similar one to this but this is very nice," said Cheryl Crittenden.

Boatnik festivities continue until Monday. Which includes boat races, carnival rides, food and more.
