Blessing of the Flotilla
What's a "Flotilla"?

flo·til·la - [floh-til-uh]

For you Texans - it doesn't rhyme with tortilla.

1. a group of small naval vessels, esp. a naval unit containing two or more squadrons.

Near Spokane, LA, the flotilla occurs around Fourth of July where contestants parade about Lake St. John in their boats which are decorated to a theme - either patriotic or non-patriotic. At the end they are blessed and judged and some are given awards.
