The Hopewell Holiday Boat Parade is one of the city's favorite holiday traditions.  Boat captains from the area will adorn their vessels with thousands of twinkling lights and sparkling decorations.  Boats will depart from the Jordan Point Yacht Haven at 5:30 p.m. and should arrive in Hopewell by 6:30 p.m.  Viewing of the parade is available at the Hopewell City Marina and Weston Manor.  The viewing area at the marina will feature your favorite holiday tunes while you wait for the boats. Food trucks will offer up tasty treats that will be available for purchase.  The event is free and open to the public.  Parking is available at the Hopewell City Marina, Weston Manor, and along Riverside Avenue.  Attendees should expect large crowds and potential traffic delays.  An awards ceremony will be held at the Hopewell Marina store following the parade.  All children should be accompanied by an adult.  Dress warm and bring a flashlight!  

This event wouldn't be possible without the help of the Hopewell boating community.  Boat captains spend countless hours and hundreds of dollars decorating their boats to make this event possible.  We are always looking for additional boats to add to the parade to make it even more impressive than it already is.  Please help us spread the word and register your boat today at the link below!
