Lighted Boat Parade Sails Past Brooklyn Bridge Park This Saturday Night

Brooklyn Bridge Park (represented by the lower red line in the maritime map above) offers prime viewing for the annual New York Harbor Lighted Boat Parade this Saturday setting out at 7 p.m. from the Battery.

And just like the Macy’s Day Parade, you can spot old Saint Nick on the last “float” of the parade. (Mr. Claus will be sailing on the Eastern Star yacht.)

New York Harbor tour boats, work boats, private boaters and charter yachts gather to participate in this harbor-town tradition. This year Schooner Adirondack will lead the parade. (There were a few seats left on the Adirondack as of last night if you want to ride in the parade.) Each vessel will be decorated with twinkling lights and holiday décor.

Vessels will be gathering at Pier A, and will travel to Brooklyn Bridge Park, traveling north along the Brooklyn Waterfront, passing under the Brooklyn Bridge and doing a tight pass along Manhattan's waterfront at South Street Seaport.
