Lighted Boat Parade in Gig Harbor @ Gig Harbor
Dec 8 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Lighted Boat Parade in Gig Harbor @ Gig Harbor  | Gig Harbor | Washington | United States

The Gig Harbor Lighted Boat Parade, sponsored by the Gig Harbor Yacht Club, will take place on Saturday, December 8th, 2018, beginning at 5:00 PM. A long line of brightly lit boats, including fishing vessels, pleasure boats and kayaks, will parade twice around Gig Harbor.

The parade route will start at Arabella’s Marina, proceed to the City Dock area, turn inside the harbor entrance, go down the north side of the harbor and turn again to pass by Anthony’s and the marinas in the western bay, and finally come back by Arabella’s and the City Dock before tracing the route a second time.

The lighted boat parade will be visible from many points around the harbor and is an excellent opportunity to gather friends, view the boats as they pass and celebrate the holidays and Gig Harbor’s maritime tradition.

All area boaters are very welcome to participate, and can sign up to receive details or more information by sending their name, boat name and length and email address to ghyclightedparade@gmail.com, or by going to the Gig Harbor Yacht Club website (whether you are a member or not), GigHarborYC.com and clicking on “Lighted Boat Parade” under “Event Calendar.”

We are hoping for a many boats, many lights, and enjoyment for all, whether on ship or ashore.
