On Saturday, the holiday season gets underway in the neighborhood at 7th Street Landing with the tree lighting ceremony and Parade of Lighted Boats along the Washington Channel. The festivities get underway at 4pm and last until 7pm. Music will be provided by Strykers Pose, refreshments by District Doghouse (owned by the proprietors of Cantina Marina) and there will be complementary photos with Santa, so bring the kids!
Update: Included are a couple of photos from the event. The photo at the top of the post is the Christmas tree that was lit up in the middle of 7th Street Landing. One of the lighted boats in the parade passes by in the background. There was a large fire pit installed to help keep people warm as they enjoyed the festivities. Free smores were provided as well. In case you didn't get a chance to see the parade, throughout the holiday season, some boat owners will keep their lights on in the evenings.
