Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade ~ free
Lighting the Annapolis holidays for 31 years, this glittering parade features several dozen illuminated boats that travel the waterfront in two fleets: one circles in front of Eastport, City Dock and the Naval Academy seawall; the other cruises the length of Spa Creek. Parade participants compete for prizes. The parade draws nearly 30,000 spectators, so arrive early for a spot along the Annapolis waterfront. 6-8pm from Eastport Yacht Club to Naval seawall: 410-991-0410; www.eyclightsparade.org.
