WHAT was your favourite among the 20-odd boats that set sail on Lake Macquarie at the weekend for the inaugural Float Your Boat event?

Lake Macquarie City Council is inviting the community to decide this year’s People’s Choice Award.

Council’s cultural services manager Jacqui Hemsley said the flotilla of lights floating across the lake was a spectacular site.

“The boats all looked fantastic on the water, and we’ve received positive feedback from the community along the foreshore that enjoyed the show,” Ms Hemsley said. 

“Now we need the community’s help to decide the People’s Choice Award. All you have to do is visit council’s Facebook page and ‘like’ the boat that you think has the most ‘wow factor’.

“The boat with the most likes at the end of voting will win bragging rights and $1,000 thanks to Marmong Point Marina.” 

To vote for your favourite boat, visit facebook.com/lakemaccity and ‘like’ your favourite boat before 5pm this Thursday, June 22.  

Winners will be announced on Friday, June 23.
