7- CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Aug. 8 - Aug. 14, 2003 - 105 Eighth annual Boast the Coast set Oct. 4 in Lewes The Lewes Chamber of Com- merce and Visitors Bureau Inc. will host its eighth annual mar- itime event, Boast the Coast, on Saturday, Oct. 4. Boast the Coast was conceived in 1996 to show- case Lewes' nautical heritage and to feature activities that comple- mented the previously established Coast Day event, sponsored by the University of Delaware's Col- lege of Marine Studies. This year, Coast Day will be held Sunday, Oct. 5. The culmination of the day's nautically themed activities will be the Lighted Boat Parade. The popularity of the boat parade is demonstrated each year by the large crowds who line the banks of the Lewes Canal to watch the event. Boats will be judged in cat- egories based on the size and type of the vessel, with cash and mer- chandise awards bestowed on the winners. There is no entry fee for the boat owners to enter the pa- rade. Preregistration is required and applications can be obtained by calling the Chamber of Com- merce or stopping by its 120 Kings Highway location. Regis- tration forms will be available at the Lewes Harbour Marina Bait & Tackle Shop on the canal after La- bor Day. According to Carole Pearce, who has served as Boast the Coast's chairman for five of its seven years, 'Whis year's festival will feature some of the previous year's most popular activities and some new ones, all with an em- phasis on nautical education for all ages." Activities will take place throughout the Lewes area includ- ing the Boast the Coast Tent locat- ed in 1812 Park, at the Lewes City Dock, adjacent to 1812 Park and on the Lewes Canal. In addition to the Boast the Coast activities list- ed below, the Lewes Merchants are hosting their fall sidewalk sale and the Lewes Historical Society is sponsoring its fall craft fair at the Historic Complex Area.
