Lighted Boat Parade - Gig Harbor


This year, 2019, the Gig Harbor Lighted Boat Parade is on Saturday, December 14th, 2019, beginning at 5:00 PM, and all area boaters are invited to participate and light up the harbor! Last year we had 35 boats beautifully lit, and the line of lighted boats made an amazing spectacle, stretching all around the harbor. 

The parade is sponsored by the Gig Harbor Yacht Club, but you do not have to be member to join the parade – you simply need to bring a well-lit boat and a sense of adventure. Everyone is invited, from big fishing boats to gutsy kayakers. 

As in past years, the parade route will start at Arabella’s Marina, turn inside the harbor entrance, go down the north side of the harbor to pass by Anthony’s and the marinas in the western bay, and finally come back by the City Dock before tracing the route a second time. Detailed procedures will be sent out before the event.
