Newport Harbor, RI: Lights on the Water
Boat Parade by Sea
Years ago, I was invited aboard a friend's boat participating in Newport's Annual Illuminated Boat Parade. It was cold that night…VERY cold. Bundled up in our warmest gear we headed out, excited for the adventure, thermoses of hot beverages in hand. We climbed aboard and started decorating stringing lights from bow to stern; with holiday music emanating from the speakers, we were ready for our first floating parade! The boat we were on happened to be the last in line which gave us a good view of the boats ahead and the spectators lining up along the harbor.
And then…just before we were about to motor forward, the lights on our boat began to dim and the music began to fade.
