Decorated in sparkling lights, let the boating community come together to parade through Lake Union, down the Fremont Cut, showcasing their festive decor to local families and friends onshore.  Register your vessel, be a part of the parade & compete for "Best in Show". The winner will be chosen by the public and will receive a plaque awarding them as so.

Things to know:

  • Only registered vessels can compete for Best in Show (form, fee, and confirmation email submitted and received)
  • Unregistered vessels are required to follow behind the official parade. A Parade of Boats invitation/notification does not constitute registration. 
  • It is up to every boater to gauge their own boating skills and the safety of their passengers & vessel. It is imperative to hold to the rules of the waterways and pay extra caution.
