Red, White and Blue Food and Drinks

You’ll want to keep yourself fed and hydrated while you’re out on Lake Norman celebrating the Fourth of July.

There are several snacks that you can bring on the boat that will carry the red, white and blue theme.

You can make a patriotic fruit salad with strawberries, watermelon and blueberries. Or you can make American flag skewers with apples, raspberries and blueberries which will make it easy to eat on the boat.

Other Fourth of July staples that you can put in your cooler includes potato salad, pasta salad, deviled eggs, pre-made cold cut sandwiches and of course some good old-fashioned potato chips.

Make sure you bring your favorite drinks on board the boat including water. You want to stay hydrated as you hang out in the sun all day.

And just a reminder, while we know that sparklers are a Fourth of July must-have, please do not light them on any of our boats for safety reasons.

Remember to use the hashtag #SummerAtWestport while putting your fun-filled pictures on Instagram and Facebook! We want to be able to share them on our social media and website!

We hope everyone has a fun, safe July 4th while cruising on Lake Norman in one of our boats!
