Make sure to get out this weekend for the annual Lighted Ship and Lighted Truck Parade¬†in Victoria this weekend, December 3, 2016. It’s one of my favorite events of the Holiday Season. I’ll be there, all bundled up with my thermos full of Hot Chocolate nestled in somewhere around the inner harbour to experience both. Here’s the itinarary for this event.


Lighted Ship events begin at 5:00pm with music, hot seasonal drinks, food trucks and Market vendors at Ships Point, Inner Harbour. At 5:30 the parade begins with 0ver 25 beautifully decorated boats circling the entire harbour, It’s a spectacular sight.


At Ogden Point the Trucks take of on their route down Dallas Road to the Oak Bay Marina – along Oak Bay Avenue and then twisting through downtown Victoria to pass in front of the Empress Hotel before heading to the Westshore where they wrap up t Western Speedway in Langford. It’s an exciting and family fun event. Not to be missed.
