Holiday Traditions of the Lowcountry: Light Up the Night

What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with a mystical and magical display of decorated boats ambling up the Beaufort River? On Saturday, December 3, at 5:30 p.m., Main Street Beaufort is combining efforts with the Beaufort Sail and Power Squadron to present the Light Up The Night boat parade.
This event will showcase Beaufort’s strong connection to the waterway to create a magnificent showing of local and regional boaters on the river. Growing boater participation and attendance indicate a desire to continue this festive favorite. Bring the family to watch the enchanted display of decorated boats from Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated boats.
In an effort to help those who are there to help us when we are in need, the Beaufort Sail and Power Squadron will share a portion of the net proceeds with the Beaufort Water Search and Rescue again this year.

Also this weekend:
A Night on the Town: Friday, December 2, from 6 to 8 p.m. Stroll the streets and stores and get in the holiday spirit. The evening includes the city of Beaufort’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Entertainment provided by the Parris Island Marine Corps Band, choral and dance performances and a visit from Santa.

Annual Christmas Parade: On Sunday, December 4, from 3 to 5 p.m., enjoy the traditional Christmas parade through downtown Beaufort’s city streets with floats and marching bands.
