Blessing of the Fleet returns to Smashed on the Rocks

The Blessing of the Fleet in Algoma took place on Saturday, June 3rd, at Smashed on the Rocks for its 4th year. The event started at 11 am with food and drinks available for all who came. At 2 pm, live music was played by the band For What Its Worth. Then at 6 pm, the boats began lining up to wait for the Coast Guard boat. At approximately 6:30, the boats all started making their way out of the canal and into the lake. In the marina, an Algoma Fire and Rescue truck gave the boats their salute by aiming a hose above the traveling ships. Like previous years, the boats then took a lap around in a circle in the lake before returning to dock. The night continued with more live music from the band Annex. Then at dusk, Smashed on the Rocks began their firework show that many of the residents of Algoma watched.
