The “Big Day” itself

On July 22, 2017, people will open their boats and hearts for deserving “Littles” and their “Bigs.” The “Boat Hosts” tube and swim with their guests who arrive by car at the chosen meeting place: A marina, public ramp, boat club or a private home.

The mornings are full of fun, and Boat Hosts often join together to increase the fun. Thanks to electronic communications and Facebook, the meet-ups can occur at any location. The day concludes with a picnic and fun activities for more than 600 participants at Duke Energy’s Explorium Huntersville. Boat Hosts and the Bigs with their Littles can drive there separately and leave separately as well.

Food is donated by local businesses.
