November 26, 2020

The Gig Harbor Lighted Boat Parade, sponsored by the Gig Harbor Yacht Club, will take place on Saturday, December 12th, 2020, beginning at 5:00 PM. A long line of brightly decorated boats, including fishing vessels, pleasure boats, and kayaks, will parade twice around Gig Harbor. 

All area boaters are very welcome to sail in the parade, whether or not they are members of the Gig Harbor Yacht Club. Skippers can sign up to receive details or more information by sending their name, boat name, and length, email address, and home port or club to

The parade route will start at Arabella’s Marina, proceed to the City Dock area, turn inside the harbor entrance, go down the north side of the harbor and turn again to pass by Anthony’s and the marinas in the western bay, and finally come back by Arabella’s and the City Dock before tracing the route a second time. 

We are hoping for good weather, many boats, many lights, and enjoyment for all, whether on ship or ashore.
