The Lighted Boat Parades continue! This weekend, actually tonight, the St. Francis YC’s Decorated Boat Parade in San Francisco will travel between Crissy Field and the Marina Green. Will you participate in or watch the parade?
To get you fired up, here are some photos from last weekend’s Lighted Yacht Parade in Alameda, which was organized by the Alameda and Oakland yacht clubs. Forty-five yachts decked their rigs with lights, costumes and giant Santas.
… and jellyfish.
First place in the Sailboat category was Carson Hobart from Oakland aboard Joint Venture.
Second place was awarded to Kwame Copeland from Alameda aboard Espresso (pictured below).
Following are a few more of our favorite photos from the parade.
We hope you enjoy tonight’s parade and any other Christmas lights you happen to visit. Pier 39 in San Francisco is featuring a tree-lighting ceremony every half hour between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. The Pier’s 60-foot-tall white fir tree will be lit up to the accompaniment of synchronized holiday music.
Whatever you do, and whatever you see, have fun. Happy Holidays!
