2014 BOAT PARADE HAS BEEN CANCELLED!

We are sorry to report that due to some upcoming work that will be taking place in Huntington Harbor, the 2014 Huntington Lighthouse Boat Parade/Parade of Lights has been cancelled.

 

Tugboats, barges and ancillary vessels are presently positioning themselves into Huntington Harbor to begin a long awaited dredging project, and additional vessels will be soon be arriving to start the rebuilding of the bulkheads in Halesite.  These vessels will impede the channel at the south end of the harbor, making it impossible to navigate safely through the parade route. There is no safe alternate route.

 

Safety on the waterfront is our first and foremost concern, and while we are disappointed that we can’t celebrate this event this year, we are excited about the improvements to our beautiful harbor and promise to make the 2015 Boat Parade better and more exciting than ever.

 

We extend our heartfelt wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to the entire Huntington community and we thank you for your understanding and, as always, your great spirit and continued support!

 

Best wishes,

 

The Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society
