For the third time this summer, the Mississippi Boaters for Trump group gathered on the Coast for a boat parade.
Saturday, over 1,000 boats were estimated to have been a part of the Boaters for Trump parade in Biloxi. Boats gathered at Big Lake and cruised through Biloxi Bay then out into the Gulf.
The Facebook group, which was just started back in June 2020, has now hosted three boat parades on the Coast since the Fourth of July. Group Administrator Lisa May said, “I think right now with everything going on in our country, this is a way that we are able to peacefully get together and just show our support, fight for our country, fight for our president. You know, this is a hard day and time and this is the way that we choose to do it. Silent majority coming together. Huge group. One thing I’d want to add is how much we do love our group members. If you just look around, you can see how the Mississippi Boaters for Trump they always show up and show out.”
At the moment, May says the group does not have another parade scheduled. However, there are plans in the works for their next event.
