Christmas Boat Light Parade and Party

Saturday December 7th

Ho! Ho! Ho! Join us for the VCKC Christmas Boat Parade and Potluck Social! 

Last year’s inaugural Boat Parade was a huge hit with VCKC members and Saanich community families. We are looking forward to another great turnout of festive Holiday boats from all programs especially as this is now a Saturday evening event.

Saturday, December 7th

3:00 – 4:15 Boat decorating (headlamps may be helpful when moving the boats)

4:30    Start of the Parade

Parade route: from VCKC clubhouse to Craigflower Bridge (Admirals road) and backPace:  slow paddle at a “walker’s” pace for the benefit of spectators along the Gorge so dress warmly! Christmas music, a hot chocolate station and Christmas sweets for the kids will be part of the fun.

This event goes Rain or Shine – consider this when planning your decorations

VCKC Christmas potluck social to follow
