On Saturday, December 14th starting at 5:00 p.m., the Electric Light Boat
Parade will be the culmination of our Lakes Festival of Lights. We'll have a fantastic flotilla of beautifully decorated boats.
And it's great fun too! The crowd in the stands cheers for their
favorite boats as they pass by. People in the boats wave to the crowd,
sing carols, and enjoy all the lights.
If you're a Lakes Association boat owner, we encourage you to decorate
your boat and enter it in the Parade. Here's what to do:
Please register your
boat for the Parade before November 30. Even if you're not sure,
register it anyway. That way if you change your mind, we'll have your
boat on our list. To register your boat,
CLICK HERE to download
the registration form. You'll receive a sign with your registration
number so we can identify your boat as it passes the viewing stands.
Last minute show ups are still welcome -- the more boats we have, the better the show.
Use all your creativity to make your boat special.
Remember all the boats (and homes & yards) will be judged on Wednesday,
December 11th starting at 5:30 p.m. so
make sure your lights are lit! Remember, you can't win a trophy if you
don't decorate! CLICK HERE
for useful information on how to illuminate your boat.
Please make sure
your batteries are fully charged before the Parade.
Instructions: If you're
"captaining" a boat in the Parade,
CLICK HERE to download a full set of instructions. Keep a copy in
your boat for reference during the Parade.
All boats will be going in the same direction (counter-clockwise) starting
at the north end of the lake.
Each registered boat will be announced as it passes the viewing stands. The
announcer will have information on all the registered boats. When
your boat passes by, he'll see the registration number and introduce your boat
to the crowd. So please register your boat!
