We have the best seats in the house for the 32nd annual Holiday Parade of Boats on Saturday, Dec. 7. Boats decorated for the holidays will make their way down the Cooper River, starting on the Mount Pleasant side and ending in the Ashley River.
Dozens of local residents jazz up their boats from stem to stern with lights and decorations and take to the Charleston Harbor. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place boats in both the power and sail categories, with the best-in-show award going to the highest scoring boat overall.
The Blues & BBQ Harbor Cruise begins at 5:30 p.m. Enjoy a two-hour cruise on The Carolina Queen during the Parade of Boats plus blues music from Shrimp City Slim and a barbecue buffet. Cost is $42.95 per person.
Or board the Carolina Belle in your worst holiday sweater for our Ugly Sweater Holiday Party Cruise. Win a $75 prize for the ugliest sweater as determined by our friends at Y102.5. The cruise departs at 5:30 p.m. and the cost is $25 per person and includes one cocktail.
