Dozens of boats took part in the 7th annual Ferrt Drive Pontoon Parade on Lake Osakis Friday afternoon.

Each boat was decorated with a theme - everything from a pirate boat to red Solo cup party barge. Boaters tossed (floating) bags of candy to kids on shore.

A crowd gathered at Head of the Lakes Resort on the north end of Lake Osakis and lots of kids were in the water and waving from the ends of docks.

More photos from the fun parade in Wednesday's Echo Press.
