It was a big weekend across Columbus County as the nation celebrated Independence Day. Saturday saw the first ever patriotic flotilla, also called the Trump Parade, at Lake Waccamaw. Organizers estimated between 100 and 200 boats participated. The flotilla started at the Lake Waccamaw Dam, where Alma Galloway got the American spirit going with the National Anthem.
Organizers hope to have another parade supporting President Trump over the Labor Day weekend.
