The annual boat parade has long been a tradition on Cobbett's Pond. For decades the residents along the shores of Cobbett's Pond have decorated their boats in a variety of themes. At one time the parade also included a Miss Cobbett's Pond contest, with the winner getting to ride on a boat decorated specifically for the beauty contest. This year the boat parade will take place on September 3rd with a theme of "Favorite Travel Destination". The winner of the contest will receive a plaque which they can proudly display at their home until the next the boat parade.
