The theme of this year’s Goodland Boat Parade was “Broadway Musicals,” but the event on Saturday will be remembered most for the boats “Blowin’ in the Wind.” The stiff breeze, with gusts up to approximately 30 knots, posed a real challenge for the skippers of the 14 vessels entered in the parade, even without the spectator boats that insisted on blundering into the their path.
