Great Tugboat Race (video)Saturday, June 30, 2012 by: SooToday.com Staff
The 31st annual Great Tugboat Race today included tugboats from near and far competing in six races.
The free event also featured a pancake breakfast on Saturday morning from 7 to 11 a.m.
The barge, Nostalgia was decked out in Great Tugboat race finery for breakfast in the Roberta Bondar Marina on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Tomorrow morning it will be moored at the George Kemp Marina in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, offering pancakes and all the fixins with a side of Great Tugboat Race memorabilia.
After breakfast, racers and friends got a little rest before starting the Tugboat show at Clergue Park then the races began on St. Mary's River right after that.
While boaters were racing, guests at the Bondar Marina were able to enjoy some barbecued yummies, other refreshments and the kids enjoyed some fun on the Steelworkers Inflatables and slides.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Great Tugboat Race's charity in support of local children with special needs.
