Christmas Boat Parade hits Lake Sammamish
December 3, 2013
A new tradition begins this year with the first parade of boats decked out in holiday lights on Lake Sammamish at 5 p.m. Dec. 7 (rain date Dec. 8) at the state park beach.
Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park invite the public to sing carols around a bonfire and sip hot chocolate while enjoying the magic of the twinkling lights on the boats from the beach at the park. Visitors will need a Discover Pass to enter the park or pay a $10 admission fee per carload.
Boaters will proceed from the state park around the southern half of the lake until 8 p.m. The following weekend, they will be back to cruise the north end of the lake Dec. 14 (rain date Dec. 15.) Boaters interested in decorating their boat and joining the parade should call 449-0070. The boat parade is coordinated by the Lake Sammamish Yacht Club.
