30th Annual SYC Lighted Boat Parade

December 9, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Lighted Boat parade is one of our most popular events of the year. Everyone wants to attend, but we can only accommodate a limited number of members and guests in the club at any one time.

180 at a time to be specific! We have over 1000 members and spouses at our fine club and will be taking reservations for members-only at this time. If we have space for guests, you may reserve for them after December 1.

This is the 30th Anniversary of the Parade. Please consider decorating your boat as a participant!


Doors Open, Bars and Galley opens: 5pm

Parade Arrives: about 6:15pm

Fireworks: About 7:30pm

Dancing to the Chris Saunders Quintet begins on the dancefloor about 8pm

Seating and Food:

The format at the club this year will be casual and fun.  Seating is strictly self serve, first come first served, tables and chairs available for sitting while eating, but there will not be dedicated seating to all that attend.  ( We’ll have a close to 190 members in the club most of the evening..)  We expect a large crowd and suggest getting to the club early. We will have a quick service food stand set up offering  a choice of plated meals. One entrée / meal is included in the ticket price. Additional food, desserts, etc will be available to purchase.

Peruvian Grilled Chicken, Cranberry Pecan Wild Rice, Yams, and Kale Salad
