Since 1964, the Clover Island Yacht Club has been entertaining holiday revelers along the Columbia River during the annual Lighted Christmas Boat Parade.

Lighted Boat Parade

The parade starts each night at 6pm under the Cable Bridge at Clover Island.  They travel up river on the Kennewick side along Columbia Park.  At around 7:30pm, they turn around at the far end of Howard Amon Park in Richland and travel back down river on the same course.  They arrive back at Clover Island and make an additional loop for everyone on the island before they head back into the Clover Island Marina at around 9pm.

Here's a YouTube video of last year's 2017 Lighted Christmas Boat Parade:

There are many, many amazing vantage points on both sides of the Columbia River for this deck-to-deck floating, lighting experience. Thanks for all the hard work from all the volunteers that goes into this long running community tradition.
