The Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade takes place December 14th from 6-8 p.m. at the Annapolis Harbor and Spa Creek above the Spa Creek Bridge. This signature event gathers families and friends around the waterfront to watch as seafaring vessels set forth into the cold night, illuminating the darkness in their seasonal light displays. The best view can be found at Eastport Bridge, but other vantage points include Naval Academy, City Dock, Ego Alley, or Harbor Queen. The parade will also be broadcast for viewers looking on from a mobile device or home T.V. Stop by the Annapolis Smokehouse to grab a drink or bite to eat as you watch the water crafts and their crews brace against the cold weather.
Eastport Yacht Club advises onlookers to dress warmly for the parade, as standing still in a spot for a few hours can be chilling. Two fleets are expected to change position every hour, so sit tight as different displays wade through the waters and light up the night.
Garage parking is available for visitors and a Free City Shuttle will circulate in 20 minute intervals.
