Over the weekend hundreds of boats set sail here on the coast in support of President Trump. On the fourth of July, event organizers say around 200 boats participated in the Mississippi boaters for trump parade. The parade started in Long Beach and the boaters made their way to Biloxi. The boats were decked out in flags of all sorts including American flags, Trump flags and flags that show support to first responders. Organizers say the event went over smoothly and they are already planning another boat parade in Pascagoula later this month.
Organizer of the parade, Chris Wall says, “You know with all of the negativity that has been going on we wanted to get people together and actually show that good can come out of all this and we can get together with different races, different religions different backgrounds and just come together and be peaceful and good people.”
There will be another Mississippi boaters for Trump parade in Pascagoula on July 25th. Boasters will meet at the Chamise sandbar at noon and they will run south to the Pascagoula River Front Park. Anyone is welcome to attend.
