James River Parade of Lights

 

25th James River Parade of Lights

25TH ANNUAL JAMES RIVER PARADE OF LIGHTS WILL BE HELD ON JULY 21, 6 P.M.

It was with sad hearts that we had to cancel the 25th Annual Parade of Lights in December due to inclement weather.

But … we are happy to announce that we will be holding a “Christmas in July” Parade of Lights on Saturday, July 21. Even though the Parade of Lights will be held in the summer rather than the winter, it is expected to be one of the largest ever held. More than 25 boats registered for last December’s parade and we hope to have even more with a summertime date!

Viewers will gather along the shoreline at several sites along the river in Richmond, Chesterfield and Henrico counties to see the boats and enjoy the entertainment. Admission is FREE. The parade will follow a 14-mile route from city of Richmond to the Varina-Enon Bridge.

Boater Info

For the 25th celebration, we need even more boaters to participate, so decorate your boats and join us on the James River for this festive parade! $500 in prizes will be awarded.

Trailered powerboats and larger vessels are encouraged to participate. After the parade, an awards celebration will be held for participating boaters.
