A holiday tradition on the waters of Semiahmoo Bay – the International Yacht Club of B.C.’s Christmas Light Parade – is returning this weekend to once again light up the night.

Club spokesman Bob Bezubiak confirmed Wednesday that participating boats will muster off of White Rock pier between 4 and 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3. They’ll flip the switch en masse at 5 p.m.

Noting the forecast is for a clear night, Bezubiak predicted the display will be especially spectacular this year. Good weather will likely also increase the number of boaters who join in, he said.

Participants will make a couple of single-file passes of the pier.

For those coming down to the waterfront for the display, the best viewing is from pier’s end.
