On Saturday December 3rd, the Potomac River will light up as the 12th Annual Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lightstakes place. The festivities will start at 4pm and the parade at 6pm. More than 50 illuminated powerboats and sailboats will cruise the Potomac River from Washington DC to Alexandria.
The festivities will include free photos with Santa for children and dogs along with musical performances to start the event off. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive at the marina by fireboat at 4:15 p.m. and be at the gazebo.
A panel of judges will award prizes in several categories including Best in Show,
Hardiest Souls and Thinking Outside the Christmas Box. Cheer your favorites on from the docks and waterfront parks of Alexandria.
