Christmas Boat Parade lights up Olde Towne
St George’s Harbour was lit up this weekend as the East End hosted its first Christmas Boat Parade.
Hundreds of people gathered in St George to take in the festive atmosphere.
Quinell Francis, the Mayor of St George, said: “The town enjoyed their first boat parade and it was quite a successful event.
“The town is decorated for the season, which sets the environment for all the festive activities, and the boats in the parade were absolutely lovely.”
Ms Francis added: “The positive comments received are great.
“I would like to thank the organisers for having the vision and the patience to ensure it became a reality.
“They were determined to have the boat parade this year after discussing it for quite some time, and it is great to see what vision and determination looks like.
“The Corporation of St George supported the event and also incorporated Santa coming to town, so all the children were able to get a bag of goodies.”
