Grand Valley Lakes is known for its outstanding annual fireworks show. This year’s display didn’t disappoint the crowd which had gathered in spite of threatening weather. The fireworks were launched from Grand Valley Lakes’ volunteer fire department pontoon boat which was anchored in the large lake. The exploding rockets reflecting on the lake’s surface doubled the viewer’s pleasure.
First place trophy in The Grand Valley Lakes Annual Boat Parade went to Jim Gehringer and crew aboard “Happy Birthday America”. Sixteen beautifully decorated boats from jet skis to pontoon boats and everywhere between entered the event. The theme for this year’s parade was “Aloha Grand Valley”. Gehringer’s boat was festooned with a combination of birthday cake, flags, Uncle Sam, lots of red, white, and blue all blended with a Hawaiian motif and  Don Ho singing “Tiny Bubbles”.
