This Christmas maritime event is sponsored by the Riverwalk Yacht Club and features many boats of all types and sizes decorated with lights, holiday themes and other festive trimmings for the holiday season. The public is invited to stroll around the docks prior to the parade for an up close look at the brightly lit boats. The boat parade will make a few circles from the entrance of the Riverwalk Marina towards the west to the railroad bridge, east in front of Rhodes Ferry Park and then back into the marina. The best viewing will be at Rhodes Ferry Park, the Hard Dock Cafe or the marina launch and parking area. Boats begin leaving out at 6:00pm Patrons are invited to come walk the docks and see the decorated boats up close from 4-6pm During the parade, the Riverwalk Yacht Club will be accepting canned goods to donate to the Committee on Church Cooperation. Donation boxes will be placed near the train crossing at Rhodes Ferry Park, at the entrance of Hard Dock Cafe and by the small building at the Marina entrance.
