Trump Parade Draws “Hundreds” Of Boats On West Okoboji

West Lake Okoboji, Iowa — According to one eyewitness, “hundreds” of boats were on hand for a political rally in the form of a boat parade on West Lake Okoboji on Saturday.

The “Trump Boat Parade” was hosted by District 1 State Representative John Wills of Spirit Lake, who represents Lyon, Osceola, and the northern two-thirds of Dickinson County in the State Legislature.

Boaters lined up starting at Smith’s Bay on West Lake Okoboji at 11 a.m. to show their support for the re-election of Republican President Donald Trump. The parade was to run from 1 to 4 p.m., and organizers reminded participants to follow C.D.C guidelines for COVID-19 safety. The boats were to run counterclockwise around West Lake Okoboji.

Another boat parade is scheduled for next Saturday, August 15th around Big Spirit Lake, and will start by the spillway.
