Gig Harbor Lighted Boat Parade on December 9, 2023

By Gig Harbor Yacht Club November 3, 2023

The Gig Harbor Lighted Boat Parade, sponsored by the Gig Harbor Yacht Club, will make the
Harbor sparkle once again on Saturday, December 9th, 2023, beginning at 5:00 PM. A long line
of brightly decorated boats, including fishing vessels, pleasure boats and kayaks, will parade
around Gig Harbor. In past years there have been over 60 vessels in the parade!
All area boaters are encouraged to participate in the parade, whether or not they are members
of the Gig Harbor Yacht Club. Just put some Christmas lights on your boat and join in the fun.
Skippers can sign up to receive details and more information by sending their name, boat name
& length, email address and home port or club to There is no
charge, and no commitment.
The parade route is twice around the harbor and can be viewed from all points along the shore
with the best viewing from Jerisich Dock, Bogue Viewing Platform, Maritime Pier and Ancich
Waterfront Park.
We are hoping for good weather, many boats, many lights, and enjoyment for all, whether on
ship or ashore.
