Parade of Lighted Boats December 2nd, 2012

O Christmas Tree


Last night we went to the parade of lighted boats down at the Southwest Waterfront, and it was pretty awesome. There were holiday tunes and mulled wine and even a fake snow machine (!!!) and of course Santa. The boats left earlier in the evening from the kickoff spot in Alexandria, all decorated with lights and blow-up decorations, ornaments, and other festive decor. They then reached SW, gliding up and down the Washington Channel in full view for the crowd of people waiting and cheering. I kept busy trying to take photos of every single boat, kind of a fail without the tripod, but oh well. Bowser enjoyed meeting lots of other doggies and searching the grounds for dropped cookies and marshmallows. Good times! I kind of want a boat now, just so I can decorate it (Matt is going to kill me when he reads that).
