Annual Lighted Ships Parade - Celebrating 50 Years!
Since 1969,  the Poulsbo Yacht Club has presented a PYC Lighted Ships Parade in December.  The parade has become a holiday tradition enjoyed by the entire community.  PYC boat owners decorate their boats in holiday lights and cruise with Santa Claus along Liberty Bay to Keyport, Manzanita Bay, up the west side of Bainbridge Island through Agate Pass to the Suquamish dock, and return along the west side of Agate Pass to Point Bolin, north to Lemolo and the east side of Liberty Bay before returning to the clubhouse for holiday fun and socializing.
December 14, 2019, between 5-9 p.m.   Click on the parade logo to see all the details.
