Annual Holiday Parade on Wheeler Lake Set for December 13

Sponsored by the Riverwalk Yacht Club, Riverwalk Marina and Hard Dock Café, the annual Parade of Lights will take to the waterway, illuminating Wheeler Lake, on Saturday, December 13, 2014. The free holiday maritime event features approximately 15 to 20 boats of all types and sizes decorated with lights, holiday themes, and other festive trimmings for the holiday season. The public is also invited for a leisurely stroll around the docks for an up close look at the brightly lit boats prior to the parade.

Beginning at 4 p.m., the docks at Riverwalk Marina open allowing the public to admire the boats and their holiday decorations before they set sail.  

At 6 p.m. the boat parade will take its usual circular route, making two trips from the entrance of Riverwalk Marina located on Highway 31, west to the Railroad Bridge turning east in front of Rhodes Ferry Park to the Highway 31 bridge, and then back into the Marina. The best viewing will be at Rhodes Ferry Park, the Hard Dock Café or at the Marina. 

During the parade, the Riverwalk Yacht Club will be accepting canned goods to donate to the Committee on Church Cooperation. Donation boxes will be placed near the train crossing at Rhodes Ferry Park, at the entrance of Hard Dock Café and by the small building at the Marina entrance.

Anyone interested in participating in the parade or for more information, contact Kristy Burgreen at 256.527.7246. A registration packet and additional information is also available at
