Gig Harbor Lighted Boat Parade
December 12, 2020!!
All boats are invited!!!
to an event where social distancing means, "Please keep one to two boat-lengths between you and the boat in front of you." And with the LED lights options now available, the only limit on decorating your boat is your imagination. It's cheap, easy and fun!
Everyone is invited - you do not have to be a member of the Gig Harbor Yacht Club
The actual parade is a real thrill. You are out there on the water, with a fleet of other boats all lit up, and the houses and buildings along the water are all decorated with lights. You make two laps around the harbor in the middle of this incredible light show, and it's a blast.
So please sign up now and let us know you are coming.
You can do that by dropping us an email
and let us know your name, boat name and length, power or sail.
See you on the lighted water!
