4th of July Fireworks Paddle and Gathering. Gene Boothe will lead his annual paddle and picnic from the Fairhope Yacht Club Gazebo. Plan to gather at the Gazebo around 6-6:30'ish. Bring a dish to eat and to share. Plan to leave the Gazebo at approx 7:30, to paddle to the Fairhope Pier, to enjoy the fireworks from the water by the marina at the pier. This is one of the most enjoyable views of Fairhope's wonderful Fireworks, come and enjoy the trip. Round trip is approximately 2 miles.
Contact Gene or Caroline Boothe for questions or details: 251-928-1107
IMPORTANT: We paddle together on this short trip, staying close to shore. There are hundreds of motor boats in the bay, but we have never had a problem with crowding, as we are closer to shore than they travel. Marine law requires a light on your boat after dark (a flashlight will be fine in this situation).
