The annual Tri-Cities Christmas Boat Parade is Dec. 9-10. About 30 boats will be decked out in festive lights and holiday animation.
The boats will leave the Clover Island Yacht Club in Kennewick about 6 p.m. each night and make a leisurely trip to Howard Amon Park in Richland and back.
Any captain and crew of their own boats can take part in the parade by signing up at the skipper's meeting at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 7 at the yacht club on Clover Island. For more information, call Larry Kuga at 734-9599.
It will take the floating parade about 90 minutes to reach Howard Amon Park. Before the fleet arrives, the Barbershop Holiday Concert featuring the Columbia River Chordsmen, Rolling Hills Chorus of Sweet Adelines International and two choirs from Richland High School will entertain from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Richland Community Center, 500 Amon Park Drive, Richland.
