18th Annual Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lights

The 18th Annual Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lights is this Saturday, following the Scottish Christmas Walk Parade.  Dozens of brightly lit boats will cruise the Potomac River at the waterfront.  Then a panel of judges will award prizes in categories such as: Best in Show, Thinking Outside the Christmas Box, and Hardiest Souls.

The parade begins at 5:30PM.  And as if that wasn’t enough, Santa Claus will arrive by fireboat at the Alexandria City Marina before the parade at 3PM.  He will meet with children until 6PM at the Torpedo Factory Art Center and he will be available to take photos.  The annual Holiday Festival, live music and a scavenger hunt will also take place at the Torpedo Factory.

The parade will stretch for one mile from Founders Park at the north end to Ford’s Landing City Park at the south end, with the parade finishing near Wilson Bridge.

 

Sounds fun!
