Waterfront Festival 2017 – The biggest Fool’s Flotilla yet!
The annual Marquette Neighborhood Association Waterfront festival takes place in Yahara Place Park, nestled on the northern shore of Lake Monona near where it meets the Yahara River just a couple of blocks from Williamson St., Schenk’s Corner, and just a few blocks from our office.
We are happy to support the Marquette Neighborhood Association through our sponsorship so that they can achieve their goals and mission to make our east side neighborhoods stronger.
The Fool’s Flotilla
One of the event highlights is the Fool’s Flotilla. Sponsored by the River Alliance of Wisconsin, the small but mighty Yahara river is taken over by 250+ costumed boats, floats, and musicians! The canoe parade has really caught on and has become a much-anticipated, spectacular addition to the water-themed festival.
