Dedicated to those who love and care for Vintage, Classic Boats in America’s Heartland

Oh, What Fun …

to get into the spirit of Christmas by working together to bring creative ideas to fruition then generating nostalgia and joy along the parade route.

 Presented at the Lake of the Ozarks Christmas Parade  December 10, 2022

Making the existence known about the Heartland Classics Community – besides having fun and spreading joy – is one of the goals of sponsoring and participating in local community events.

Spearheading the effort to have Heartland Classics Chapter of ACBS become a “household name” in the Lake of the Ozarks area are Mark Engstrom and Jenni McGowin with 1958 Starcraft Tin Fin and 1960 Texas Maid Tin Fin II. Other participants were Steve and Elizabeth Bradbury  with 1957 Lyman Wood Duck I, Doug and Stacy Heinsohn sharing 1972 Century It’s Miller Time, and photographers Randy James and Jacki Smick.

An In-The-Water Parade of Boats was held the same evening at Grand Lake in Oklahoma, also sponsored by Heartland Classics Chapter.  You can watch that parade on TV replays:
