FREEPORT — Hundreds of boats and thousands of participants took part in a Boats ’N Votes boat parade Aug. 29 intended to promote patriotism and show support for President Donald Trump.

The grassroots event was modeled after similar boat parades, including ones planned for this weekend in Matagorda, Rockport and Galveston. It included boats from the San Bernard River and Bastrop Marina areas, as well as others around Brazoria County and elsewhere.

A wonderful event for those interested. Fun for all!! Pics in the print edition today. It's Saltwater Texans for Trump (on fb). I can't imagine walking up on the Rt 332 Surfside bridge?
