  The winds disappeared setting the stage for a wonderful evening under a crescent moon for the 14th Annual Discovery Bay Parade of Lights and Tree Lighting Ceremony.  This year’s theme “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” brought thousands of spectators to the streets of Discovery Bay. To save prime viewing spots chairs and tents were being set up early Saturday morning. Street parties were held all along the parade route with fire pits glowing on front lawns and even a few living room leather couches out on the side walk making for extra comfy viewing.

The Parade starts at the Discovery Bay Marina where the floats assemble, take care of last minute decorations and practice their routines one last time. Then shortly after sunset the parade heads down the streets of Discovery Bay to the delight of thousands of both local and visiting festive spectators. The Judging tent sits prominently in front of the Community Center as the floats pass by stopping to dazzle the Judges

      The crowd enjoying the festivities

Sponsored by the Discovery Bay Lions Club this annual event is a testament to our Community Spirit as a small town hosts a big city like parade with dozens of lighted floats, bands, and walking groups. Individuals as well as  local businesses and schools work for weeks to create their Parade entry. This year was another very successful family oriented event.  Next week the Community will be treated to the Discovery Bay Yacht Club's Annual Lighted Boat Parade (Dec 10th), followed by the Willow Lake Annual Lighted Boat Parade (Dec 17th). A busy time in Discovery Bay whose motto is “Live Where You Play”
