Boats Needed for Annual Parade

Boaters are wanted for the annual Holiday Harbor Lights Illuminated Boat Parade on Friday, Nov. 25. Prizes will be given in the following categories: Best Decorated Sailboat (commercial and recreational) and Best Decorated Powerboat (commercial and recreational), Best Decorated Fishing Boat, Best Decorated Porch or Docks, and finally, arguably the parade’s most entertaining category, Most Team Spirit.

Parade organizers also encourage all Newport Harbor waterfront owners to decorate porches and docks for the event through the holiday season. An award will be presented to the most dazzling land-lubbing display as observed by the Harbormaster from the water that evening.

Any organization, business, or boat owner that would like to get involved in the parade should contact Newport Harbormaster Tim Mills at 401-845-5815. Participants are asked to register by noon on the day of the parade.
