The “Holiday on the Creek” boat parade will again be presented by the Julington Creek Prop Club for the community to enjoy. This holiday tradition will take place on Saturday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. The highly anticipated night is for all families to gather and enjoy the beauty of color, lights, and sounds of the season along Julington Creek. Participants will decorate their boats, homes, and docks to spread the joy and excitement of the holidays.

The Julington Creek Prop Club is a 501 (c ) 3 non-profit organization committed to sharing a passion for boating and local waterways with everyone while also enhancing the boating experience.

Dozens of holiday light-adorned boats will start at the Julington Creek Marina and travel towards Clark’s Fish Camp and under the Julington Creek bridge, eventually making a loop for spectators to enjoy.

“Approximately 40 boats are expected to join,” said Julington Creek Prop Club Commodore Mark Meacham. “Prizes will be awarded for the top three voted on boats and top three docks.”

Following the parade, the annual after-party for participants will take place at the Julington Creek Marina. Boaters who participate in the parade are invited to join in on a night of fun with plenty of food and raffle prizes donated by the community and local businesses. The board will announce the first, second and third place winners at the celebration.

The community is encouraged to come out and enjoy this special holiday event.
