Each year on the first Saturday in December, the Lighted Yacht Parade kicks off the holiday season. Bay Area boat owners share in the holiday spirit by decorating their boats and participating in the parade. Hundreds of spectators gather along the waterfront at specified viewing areas or at restaurants that afford them a view of the estuary. In 2011 thirty-five boats participated in the parade, and this year's organizers expect even more.
In addition to being a magical evening of lights, last year’s event also generated nearly $2000 in cash donations and $2500 in toy and food donations for The Oakland Firefighter ’s Random Acts and the Alameda County Community Food Bank. Sponsorship helps ensure that an even greater contribution can be made to both of these fine charity organizations in 2012.
