Don't miss this highly anticipated display of decorated boats cruising down the York River. The fun starts at 6 p.m. with pre-parade festivities that include caroling around a beach bonfire, a musical performance by the Fifes and Drums of York Town, and complimentary hot cider. The boats will finish out the evening as they begin making their way down the York River in a dazzling show of lights that starts at 7 p.m. This annual event that brings neighbors together to celebrate the season has been a community tradition for more than two decades. Some of the boats take almost 20 hours to decorate!

As an added safety precaution, families are encouraged to bring flashlights to assist in navigating around town at night. No rain dates are scheduled for the holiday weekend events. In the event weather conditions pose a threat, please call the York County Weather Hotline at 757.890.3520 for the most current information. This event is sponsored by the Yorktown Lighted Boat Parade Committee and Wormley Creek Marina.
