30th Annual Downtown Hampton Lighted Boat Parade Returns December 7

November 08, 2018 |

On Friday, December 7, cruise into the holiday spirit at the 30th annual Downtown Hampton Lighted Boat Parade. More than 30 boats are expected to participate in this free nautical light show taking place on the downtown Hampton waterfront.

The event will kick-off with live music by The Mullins Sisters, beginning at 6:00 p.m. At 7:00 p.m., the parade of illuminated power and sail boats will be visible from anywhere along the Hampton River. Spectators wanting to hear the narration will want to find a cozy spot near the Hampton Maritime Center. 

Those who don’t have a boat, but want to join the action, can board the Miss Hampton II tour boat. Spectators interested in riding on the Miss Hampton II are encouraged to make reservations by calling 757/722-9102. A contribution of an unwrapped toy that will be donated to Toys for Tots is required.

The after party and awards ceremony will take place at 8:30 p.m., followed by Bedtime Story with Santa at 8:45 p.m. in the Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina Hotel lobby.
