This wonderful float was the winner for the 2010 Big Bass Lake Boat Parade over the 4th of July weekend. This float provides a whole new meaning to the term paddle boat. The Big Bass Lake Belle is an outstanding effort in that I don’t believe this is a pontoon boat. I say that because just look at the various levels of this float that house passengers including the pilots at the top.

Too bad this boat can’t be used by tourists to float about Big Bass Lake throughout the summer. I wonder how much this float cost to make? To say this float is impressive doesn’t nearly cover it. Just examine the detail of this float. It makes you wonder if they had any competition at all?

The big question is will anyone be able to top this effort in 2011? Only time will tell!  I did hear that there was also a rather impressive UFO float in the parade and if anyone has a picture of that, please forward it to davidnorris1313@juno.com.
