14th Annual Johns Lake Holiday Boat Parade

 

14th Annual Johns Lake Holiday Boat Parade

Sunday – December 14th – 6:00pm

 

This year is the 14th Annual Johns Lake Boat Parade!  The event will be held on Sunday, December 14th at 6:00pm.  Come out and decorate your boat with lights and join in the fun!  Last year we had 24 boats in the parade.  Let’s try to make it even bigger and better this year!

All boats participating should gather a few minutes before 6:00pm on the northeast corner of Johns Lake, near the John’s Landing boat ramp.  The lead boat will start the parade by blasting an air-horn several times.  All boats should follow in-line and slowly head west.  The parade route will follow the northern shore of Johns Lake (from Johns Landing to Magnolia Bay, where parade ends).  The parade takes about an hour to complete. Those watching from their home or dock should flash your lights as parade passes to support all the work put into a great holiday light show.

If this is your first time decorating your boat for a parade, here are a few tips:

Christmas lights run on 120v AC and are designed to operate from your home electrical current.  To operate lights on your boat, you will need to purchase a DC to AC power inverter.  Power inverters are available at most auto parts stores, Wal-Mart, and Harbor Freight (a new store opened on Hwy 50 between Avalon Road and Dillard Street).  Power inverters convert your boat’s 12v DC power to 120v AC.  Inverters do have a limit as to how much power they can generate from your boat’s DC battery.  Inverters are rated by watts; the more watts the inverter can handle, the more lights you can put on your boat.  Most power inverters above 150 watts will need to be connected directly to your boat’s battery terminals to provide full power as 12v outlet plugs (cigarette lighters) are power limited by a fuse.

Use of LED lights provide the ability to power many more lights than incandescent lights. A 300 watt power inverter connected directly to your battery could power over 600 LED lights as opposed to 60 incandescent lights!  Be careful though, as some units will overheat if too much load is placed on them.  Test your lights for a period of time before the parade starts, or you might end up in the dark!  Make sure you use UL approved outdoor lights.  Lights on your boat are likely to get wet during the parade and you do not want to cause a fire or shock someone on your boat!
