Boat Parade to Light up Charlotte Amalie Waterfront for the Holidays

Deck your boat with boughs of holly! Or
colorful lights, inflatable Santas, plastic reindeer
or Christmas trees. The 6th Annual Lighted Boat Parade in
St. Thomas’ Charlotte
Amalie harbor is set for 6 pm on Friday December 16.

“The boats will travel along the waterfront to the West Indian
Company cruise ship dock, then loop back down towards Frenchtown staying as
close to the waterfront apron as possible,” says Pamela Wilson, general
manager of the Virgin Islands Charteryacht League

“This year, eight vessels have already signed up to enter,”
Wilson says. The Virgin
Islands Department of Tourism has donated $1,000 in cash prizes. Prize
categories include: Most Traditional, Most Lights, Most Creative and Boat
Traveled from the Farthest Distance.

For those
who want to enter this year, the good news is that there is no entry fee.
“To register, the boats can call the VICL (340-774-3944). I will have
registration forms available there. If they have any questions regarding
participation they can e-mail me at: [email protected],”
Wilson says.
