Third day of Boatnik kicks off with annual parade in Grants Pass

GRANTS PASS, Ore. – Boatnik’s third day kicked off with the parade Saturday morning, Brewfest, and exciting speedboat exhibitions.

Community members flocked to Riverside Park in Grants Pass Saturday to enjoy the carnival and food vendors which lined the paths of the park.
