Boats get lit for the holidays | Parade rescheduled to Dec. 17

The Orcas Island Yacht Club Annual Lighted Boat Parade will take place this year on Friday, Dec. 17.

It was rescheduled from Dec. 18 due to inclement weather.

The gaily lighted flotilla will assemble near the ferry terminal at 4:30 p.m., and then travel east toward Grindstone Harbor, before turning back to the west and eventually end at the yacht club dock in West Sound, arriving around 6 p.m. All are invited to bundle up, come outside and cheer on the boats as they celebrate the holiday season.
