Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade will color our holidays once again on Saturday, December 10, 2022, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. This volunteer-organized event brings illuminated magic to the waters of Annapolis Harbor.
One of the most popular holiday events in Anne Arundel County, the parade is a wonderful way to spend a fun evening with family and friends. Dress warmly and come early to secure a great viewing spot.
Decorated with thousands of colored lights, boats materialize as they emerge from the darkness of a brisk autumn evening. Along the waterfront, holiday revelers of all ages watch the unique spectacle in amazement and cheer on the boat’s costumed crew members as they perform on deck.
Approximately 40 boats in two fleets will navigate two portions of the harbor. One passes Eastport, the City Dock, and the seawall of the U.S. Naval Academy, while the second cruises the length of Spa Creek within the bridge.
In preparation for the event, community volunteers decorate their favorite viewing spots and boats with elaborate lighting schemes that celebrate the holiday season. School children create art to commemorate the parade, and prizes are awarded for their work.
The organizer, the Eastport Yacht Club, has been an Annapolis institution since 1980 with this stated purpose: “Create and sustain an active social and community involvement.”
