Press Release – San Pedro Holiday Lighted Boat Parade – October 6th, 2009
– The Fourth Annual Holiday Lighted Boat Parade will be held on Saturday, December 5th. This eagerly awaited event promises to be even more spectacular than last year with beautiful lighted boats bringing in the Holidays by motoring the shoreline of San Pedro Town from Boca del Rio to Caribbean Villas and back.
This colorful parade is scheduled to commence at 7:00 p.m. Last year the committee opted to change the event from Sunday to Saturday to give our friends and neighbors from Caye Caulker and the mainland a chance to enjoy this wonderful holiday tradition. With the support of the business community, attractive trophies and cash prizes will be awarded to the winners in the various categories like Most Original, Best Religious Theme, Best Overall, the Mayor’s Trophy and others. Like last year a prize will also be given in the Junior Category in order to encourage schools to participate.
From now through to November 26th you can join in the parade for FREE. A late entry fee of $25 will be charged to anyone registering after the abovementioned date. There will be 1st and 2nd place trophies for boats of all sizes. Enter a kayak, canoe, power boat, catamaran or sailboat - the only requirement is that there MUST be lights on board.
The Parade Committee will be collecting sponsorships for this beautiful event. Sponsorships can be in the form of cash donation and/or trophy sponsorship, etc. Watch for more details to come your way soon.
