Illuminated Boat Parade on High Street

Friday, October 27 / 6:45pm
Visible Along High Street

It’s a decorated-boat parade with a twist: The boats are not afloat but in the street. On trailers, on wheels, in the trunk of your car.


New for 2017, Downrigging Weekend adds a maritime spectacular to the opening night schedule. Boats of all sizes, shapes and shades will be illuminated, festooned and otherwise dolled up with lights, then to be paraded down High Street, led by a motorcade of vintage cars. The boats, trailers and tow vehicles will be judged for originality, design and over-the-top wattage, with $1,000 going to the big winner.
