Philadelphia Parade of Lights

parade-of-lightsDecember 10, 5:30 pm. – 7:00 pm

We are very excited to be participating in this year’s Parade of Lights hosted by the Seaport Museum.

We anticipate a record number of boats decorated for the season with beautiful lights. For the first time ever, the parade route has been extended to include Camden. The parade of boats will pass the Battleship New Jersey on the Camden Waterfront, then cruise by Winterfest on Penn’s Landing and loop back around to the Museum.

We have limited availability, but recommend you bring your family and friends to the Seaport Museum for an afternoon and evening of great holiday fun. Returning as emcee this year is Steve Nikazy who will also be announcing the winner of the parade. The parade begins at 5:30 p.m.

Coast Guard Cutter DILIGENCE will be on the waterfront for the event to conduct FREE tours for the public. Tours take place from 10 a.m. to sunset.

Arrive at the Seaport as early at 11 a.m. to explore the Museum and participate in holiday activities, including a pop-up exhibit, arts and crafts, face painting, musical performances by The Philly Pops, a visit from Santa.

See you on the River!!
