Itís all Boatnik all day long in Grants Pass today.

The annual Memorial Day festival, including a carnival and midway, parade and whitewater hydroplane races, takes place mostly around Riverside Park and on the Rogue River.

The parade begins at 10 a.m. today and follows a route through downtown Grants Pass.

The event is sponsored by the Grants Pass Active Club, which returns proceeds to community programs for children.
