Boat Parade rides again

The Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship Boat Parade officially kicked off this year’s tournament last night as dozens of anglers left the Big Tent following the rules meeting and proceeded down Front and Nelson Streets, handing out candy and other treats to the assembled crowds. While the parade was initially cancelled due to damage to Front Street caused by the high water levels, an adjustment to the parade route meant that it was given the go-ahead earlier this week, just in time to bring back the first full-scale FFCBC since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
