Harbor Lighted Boat Parade

Is being held Dec 15th and 6 pm. in the harbor. Have done this before and suggest you head down to see it if you are in town. Lots of activities going down in the Harborwalk area that day.

I have always wanted to go to this, what kind of events go on down at the harbor? Is it worth a 12 hr. drive down for a long weekend?

There is an arts and crafts show, live music, Santa Claus, the boat parade last year I think there was 25-30 boats and then a fireworks finale. Don't know if it is worth a 12 hr drive - depends on how long you would stay and enjoy the view afterwards. Certainly is worth our 20 minute drive :)

I think its a never-miss kind of thing.... Not too many other places you can experience this type of Christmas cheer! Too many times in my memory it has been foggy, but still great fun!

Sounds like a fun time, but a twelve hour drive? I think I'll pass this year.

TCG I'll have to make it next year also. We were going but weather up here didn't make it possible.
