Antioch Lighted Boat Parade Tradition Continues

Once again the Holiday DeLites Street Parade will not take place this year due to the economic downturn and city funding cuts. However, the Antioch Lighted Boat Parade will be held, as it has been for over twenty-five years.

The event is sponsored by three local yacht clubs: Bridge Marina, Driftwood and Sportsman. The parade begins at 6:00 PM on December 3rd. The best locations to view it are the Antioch Municipal Pier and all along 2nd Street in downtown Antioch. The boat parade is free and will have approximately 15 entries.

The event is also an opportunity to collect toys for homeless students who attend schools in Antioch. Drop off new toys at the Lynn House Gallery, 809 W. First Street before, during or after the parade. For more information email or call Diane Gibson-Gray at (925) 325-9897.
