From local KIWA Radio:
According to one eyewitness, “hundreds” of boats were on hand for a political rally in the form of a boat parade on West Lake Okoboji on Saturday.
The “Trump Boat Parade” was hosted by District 1 State Representative John Wills of Spirit Lake, who represents Lyon, Osceola, and the northern two-thirds of Dickinson County in the State Legislature.
Boaters lined up starting at Smith’s Bay on West Lake Okoboji at 11 a.m. to show their support for the re-election of Republican President Donald Trump. The parade was to run from 1 to 4 p.m., and organizers reminded participants to follow C.D.C guidelines for COVID-19 safety. The boats were to run counterclockwise around West Lake Okoboji.
Another boat parade is scheduled for next Saturday, August 15th around Big Spirit Lake, and will start by the spillway.
From local WHO 13:
The Iowa Great Lakes are normally a big draw for visitors in July and August. This weekend there were even more people who came to show their support for President Donald Trump.
“She decided to throw it up on Facebook and Representative Wills got a hold of it and it just went viral,” said organizer Scott Kuchel. “We’ve had almost 100,000 people comment on wanting to come here and be part of this event.”
The plan was for people to bring their boats onto West Lake Okoboji and wave Trump flags and tour the lake for around three hours, while radio station KUOO played patriotic music.
“I left my house at 6:45 this morning because just like the Field of Dreams in Iowa, if you build it, if you make Iowa great again, they will come,” said Eric Branstad, an Iowa Trump campaign advisor. “Everyone coming, this grassroots energy that I feel, that we feel today, as we see everyone coming up for this, it’s absolutely amazing.”
So far, there’s no exact count on how many boats were on the water.
“Trump supporters are really kind of like what I say is ‘the silent majority,’” said John Wills, a Republican state representative from northwest Iowa. “They support the president and they are really excited about this next election coming up on November 3rd.”
Another parade to support Trump is planned for nearby Big Spirit Lake next weekend. At Saturday’s event, there were no people visible protesting the president.
