2017 lights parade winners

It's a beloved Annapolis tradition: Every year on the second Saturday in December, magic happens on the water of the Annapolis Harbor—boats suddenly appear out of the cold winter night illuminated with thousands of colored lights and crewed by jolly revelers.  Families and friends gather at their favorite viewing spots along the waterfront to see this yearly spectacle and to celebrate the holiday season together.  The Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade is one of Annapolis’ signature events and we invite you to join us as a participant in the parade or as a spectator cheering on the decorated boats and their crews.

Date: Saturday, December 8, 2018

Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Where: Annapolis Harbor and Spa Creek above the Spa Creek Bridge

Ed Wells, Commodore
Eastport Yacht Club


Thanks to our participants, who come out and do an amazing job of transforming their watercraft (and docks and balconies) into holiday ornaments that light up our winter night. We recognize the work and planning that goes into a Lights Parade entry, and we appreciate the effort, as well as the willingness of crews to brave a very cold night. 

Special thanks go to our sponsors and advertisers. You will see listings for them on our site, which are linked to their websites.   These businesses and organizations are providing invaluable support towards making this event a reality.
