Trump Flotilla returns Sunday with second attempt at world record recognition
After hundreds of Donald Trump supporters showed up for a boat parade last year, organizers are hoping for another "Yuge!" turnout this Labor Day weekend.
On Sunday, organizers of the 2021 Patriots United Trump Flotilla will work to make history by becoming the "World’s Largest Boat Parade." Boaters from around the world are invited to come out and join the flotilla, which will start its route west of the Brooks Bridge and travel under the Destin Bridge as the finish.
After the event, participants are invited to enjoy the local waterways or hang out at the famous Crab Island.
"You know you want to show people your boat and make history at the same time," the event website says. "You don't need an excuse to participate, but you know you want to!!!!"
The event is organized by Anne Ziegenhorn and Deidre Cannon, co-administrators of the “I’m a Florida Trump Girl” Facebook page, and David and Chandra Rich of Gas Monkey Propane, according to an event website.
In 2020, boats of all sizes sporting American flags and Trump memorabilia joined with another boat parade to make an attempt at the world record.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records' website, their current record holder is a 1,180-boat parade held as part of the Malaysia Day celebrations in Kemaman, Terengganu, Malaysia, on Sept. 13, 2014.
This year, the Patriots United Trump Flotilla team is bringing in its own professional audit team to verify and certify the size of the local parade.
Registration for the event is $20 and is available at https://patriotsunitedtrumpflotilla.com/ through Saturday.
Funds raised after paying the registration, accountants and any other incidentals will be used to help provide explant surgery for women who have had adverse reactions to breast implants.
