Boat Parade of Lights
September 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
The Boat Parade of Lights is the annual Labor Day tradition during the Gloucester Schooner Festival. Enter a boat and have fun cruising down the river. At the end of the parade, enjoy a spectacular showcase of fireworks over Gloucester Harbor.
Find a spot on the Annisquam River or Gloucester Harbor to watch the parade. Another great spot is the Gloucester High School on the river’s edge. Parking near the Gloucester boulevard can be tough, so consider Stage Fort Park or Gloucester High School, and walk towards the river or Blynman Bridge which will be in the up position when the parade is passing through.
