HOLIDAY LIGHTS & SIGHTS BOAT PARADE
The Fisherman’s Wharf Community Benefit District will once again join the St. Francis Yacht Club to present the oldest and largest lighted boat holiday parade on San Francisco Bay. More than 75 boats festooned with lights & holiday decorations will parade along the waterfront Friday, December 17, 2010 starting at 6:00pm.
A holiday tradition since 1994, this year’s parade will include members of St. Francis Yacht Club, Fisherman’s Wharf Fishing Fleet, Golden Gate Yacht Club, and the PIER 39 Marina. The parade route will begin at 6:00 pm just east of PIER 39.
Spectators can get a great view from the walkway along the Aquatic Park, PIER 39 Marina Green, and Crissy Field Beach. Restaurants along the Wharf will also offer a fantastic vantage point as well as traditional holiday menus.
The Fisherman’s Wharf Fishing Fleet boats will stay lit until January 9, 2011. After the parade, viewing of these spectacular lights can be seen most prominently on Jefferson Street between Jones & Taylor Streets at the Sportfishing Harbor.
