Lights On The Creek

Join us on November 28 at 5 pm as the Rappahannock River Yacht Club celebrates the holidays with the revival of Lights on the Creek Illuminated Boat Parade. The event will begin near the Club’s docks, proceed past the Tides Inn into the Western branch of Carter’s Creek, where skippers will make a U-turn then cruise past the Tides again and sail to the Eastern Branch of Carter’s Creek.

Sailors will delight in their first glimpse of the festive array of holiday lights adorning homes and docks along the waterfront. Guests of the Tides Inn are invited to bundle up and gather on the wide lawns overlooking the water to enjoy holiday libations and the shimmery spectacle of boats illuminated stern to bow.

A sizable silver trophy goes to the captain of the boat deemed to have the most impressive illumination display. A very special holiday memory is the gift all other participant and spectators take home at the end of the evening.

Extend your Thanksgiving stay to include Saturday night and the festivities, or reserve a stay especially for this occasion. Enjoy a property credit when you reserve our Waterfront Home For The Holidays offering.
