About Eastport Yacht Club

Every year magic happens on the waters of Annapolis Harbor. Boats illuminated with thousands of colored lights and crewed by jolly revelers suddenly appear in the cold wintry night for the annual Lights Parade. Families and friends gather at their favorite viewing spots along the waterfront to enjoy the yearly spectacle. Prime viewing areas include: Eastport, Spa Creek, City Dock and Naval Academy sea wall. Sponsored by the Eastport Yacht Club.

Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade

December 8, 2018

Voted #1 in the 2016 USA Today 10Best Readers' Choice contest for Best Holiday Parade!  Every year on the second Saturday in December, magic happens on the water of the Annapolis Harbor—boats suddenly appear out of the cold winter night illuminated with thousands of colored lights and crewed by jolly revelers.  Families and friends gather at their favorite viewing spots along the waterfront to see this yearly spectacle and to celebrate the holiday season together.  The Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade is one of Annapolis’ signature events and we invite you to join us as a participant in the parade or as a spectator cheering on the decorated boats and their crews.
