Holiday Boat Parade of Lights

This opportunity is over; visit our calendar for up-to-date fun!

It’s time to deck the hulls and light up the night at Alexandria’s Holiday Boat Parade of Lights! On December 2, 2023, you’re invited to watch festive and brightly lit boats as they cruise along one mile of the Potomac River shoreline.

🎄Find even more holiday fun here!

Be sure to come early to not only secure the best viewing spot, but to enjoy festivities at Waterfront Park. There will be plenty to eat and drink, including a pop-up beer garden, as well as family-friendly activities, holiday music, and giveaways from 97.1 WASH-FM’s street team.

Make an even bigger day of it at the Canal Center Holiday Art Mart! Shop for arts, crafts, vintage goods, and more. There will even be live music featuring holiday classics and favorites, like Charlie Brown Christmas. Click for Art Mart details and schedule.

This Holiday Boat Parade of Lights is free to attend and is held rain or shine.
