PELICAN LAKE - Erupting volcanoes, pirates putting on sunscreen and a traditional military march were some of the scenes at this year's Pelican Lake boat parade.


Eight-year-old Kelsey Sparrow was one of the participants, wearing a blue grass skirt to match her family's Hawaiian vacation boat theme.

The parade's theme was "favorite vacation spot."

"We picked Hawaii, even though some of us have never been there," Kelsey Sparrow said to Todd Sparrow of Hawley.
