Canada’s largest boat party takes place on Lake Erie, off the coast of Norfolk, Ontario.
It is always held the 2nd Sunday in July, and has been going on since the early 1980’s.
It takes place completely in the water at a huge sandbar called “Pottahawk Point” (aka: Ryerson Island), in knee-deep to waist-deep water off the coast of MacDonald Turkey Point Marina. This location is directly across from Erie, Pennsylvania, USA.
The good folks at Pottahawk Pissup are offering free rides out to the party in an old Coast Guard boat which departs from the MacDonald Turkey Point Marina.
The party consists of several lines of boats which tie-off together and people can walk around in the center. There’s a DJ, live music and on the ends it’s fairly chill and laid-back. So you have the best of both worlds: party in the center, chill on the ends.
