The Summer 2015 Parade of Lights.

Summers at The Jersey Shore...
they just can not be beat
Every weekend, there are so many fun things to enjoy, participate in,
see, watch...and have the time of your life.
The beaches, the bike paths, festivals, carnivals,
we have a Facebook Page dedicated to
New Jersey Events
and there is something wonderful for everyone.

This past Saturday a dedicated boats man in
The Atlantic Highlands organized
The Summer 2015 Parade of Lights.
Simply put, 100 boats decorated with lights and flags, 
formed a parade on the Navesink River, for all to view.
Festive, fun, colorful...horns honking and people cheering,
what an amazing free event for all to share.
There was lots of tailgating, socializing,
and swapping of Jersey Shore Stories.

 What a view, waiting for the sun to set and the boats to appear.

Hamming it up...

The beginning of The Parade of Lights

The boats...






 This is not a great picture but you can see how many boats participated,
they said between 80 and 100.

Now this was fun and it was so cool outside you needed a sweatshirt.
My kinda' night!!

I love the boat parades. We had Night in Venice in Ocean City, and we loved it. Each boat had a theme, and they'd party on the boat as they went through the lagoons into the bay.

Kerry said...

I bet that was really pretty. We were in NJ last week, visiting our daughter who just had a baby. It was so hot and humid that we wished we were at the shore to catch a cool breeze.

Debbie said...

It has cooled down a little here so we headed to cape may for the day. It's raining now as we are driving home!!

LeAnn said...

Oh this looked like such a fun event. The photos are spectacular. You should do advertisements for the Jersey shore. I would love to come there sometime for a visit. The sunset pictures were breathtaking. Of course, you know how much I love them. I am looking forward to using more.
