The Independence Seaport Museum is hosting the 3rd annual Seaport Parade of Lights on the Delaware River Saturday, December 15. The festivities begin inside the Museum at 3:00 p.m, where visitors will enjoy holiday music, light refreshments, a special holiday display and a visit from Santa. Then at 4:30 p.m. Santa will join the tug Jupiter for the Seaport Parade of Lights that starts at 5:00 p.m. The parade will be led by Jupiter, a vintage 1902 tug maintained by the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild. Each boat that registers will receive two pairs of tickets (4 total) to attend the events inside the Museum.
There will be two awards for best decorated commercial and best decorated pleasure boat. The parade route is south to north past the Seaport Museum, then boats head back south to the starting point, at which point the parade is finished. The parade will be over by 6:00 pm. Please send a photo of your vessel(s) or any questions to Gina Pickton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
