It is the Christmas on the water!!! Featuring over 50 powerboats, sailboats and the District’s Fireboat, the boat parade of lights at the Alexandria Town, was one of the most beautiful light show I’ve experienced this year. Every year on the first weekend of December, the brightly lit and amazingly decorated boats line up to give the Old Alexandria Town a beautiful celebrity look for one day during this holiday season celebrations.
Experiencing the festivities at the docks of the Alexandria marina (which is of course the best place to view the parade), I am pretty much sure, The Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lights is one of the favorite holiday celebrations in the Alexandria Town as well as in and around Washington D.C. And, the best thing about this event is the admission is absolutely free of cost!!!
In addition to the boat parade, there are lots of other family events including the free cider, hot cocoa, photos with Santa etc.. are organized that makes the evening even more interesting. There are also musical performances held which adds more and more stars to the event evening.
Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lights is a definitely a fun event meant for families to enjoy the holiday season. Along with the picturesque boat parade of lights, the live music, food, and with loads of fun, this is an event that will surely make your seasonal celebrations memorable. If you haven’t experienced this fun yet, make sure you visit it next year; and, believe me, its worth 🙂
