On December 9th and 14th, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., the San Rafael Canal lights up with dozens of boats and yachts illuminating the water. Viewing locations include the back of the Montecito Plaza, Beach Park, the San Rafael Yacht Club, Pickleweed Park, and plenty of other good spots along the Canal. This year’s parade is being hosted by the Marin Yacht Club, with viewing along the Canal waterfront. 

The annual lighted boat parade in the San Rafael Canal brings together Marin Yacht Club, San Rafael Yacht Club, Loch Lomond Yacht Club, and Classic Yacht Association to benefit Community Action Marin, Marin County’s oldest and largest provider of family support services.
