February 18, 2012 | The Grand Yachty Gras Boat Parade | Kemah

The 13th Annual Yachty Gras celebration was one to remember for the record.  The community sponsorship support was fantastic. The Sundance Grill hosted the Kick-off Party with great flair.  The Yachty Gras fans turned out in force with 175 plus people attending the annual fundraiser.  A great live and silent auction was held for this year’s charity the Bay Area Veterans Memorial building fund. Kool Hand Luke and Station Break provided New Orleans style Mardi Gras music for all of the joyful revelers. HEB provided a generous “King Cake”sponsorship for  Yachty Gras King Cake Parties for cities and businesses around Clear Lake. This year’s event was topped off with the Judges Party at Outrigger’s Restaurant where the Mayors or City Officials were invited from the Bay Area Houston. At 7 PM sharp the Yachty Gras Grand Night Boat Parade came down Clear Creek Channel with Captain Robert Donley’s boat the “Panacea” as the Lead Boat. Due to tremendous storms and flooding in the area prior to the parade, the amount of boats entered was smaller than usual, but with parade entries, pirate boats and Law Enforcement we had an estimated 40 plus boats. A strong presence was made from the yacht owners with beautiful unusual decorations, entertainment and great music. The Awards Breakfast was held at the Aquarium Restaurant at the Kemah Boardwalk. A heartwarming experience was received by all of the 80 plus that attended. Many positive suggestions and comments were exchanged and enthusiasm for a larger and more beneficial event next year. Thank you to all who worked on the Board and Committees, the Community who took part in the Kick-off Fundraiser Party, the Yacht owners who found the time to decorate your boat for participation in a world class boat parade. Above all a special thanks to our Sponsors who make this event possible and the Law Enforcement Officers who gave their time to make this event safe without an accident for another year.  Laissez les bons temps rouler”
