31st Annual Lighted Boat Parade

The Annual Lighted Boat Parade is a favorite holiday spectacle here in Santa Cruz. This event is ponsored by the Santa Cruz Yacht Club and includes a canned food drive benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank. The Harbor gets transformed into a wonderland of lights as 50 boats are decorated with a holiday lighted theme. The theme for this year’s parade is ‘Santa Cruz-In, Under Starlight Together’. The lit up boats circles the harbor channel in a counter-clockwise direction from the Murray Street Bridge to the Walton Light House and back. Guest judges award prizes in six categories: Power Boats (small and large), Sailboats (small and large), as well as stationary boats in harbor slips & dry storage.
