2010 Tempe Fantasy of Lights Boat Parade
Saturday, December 11
6:00 p.m. Arrival of Santa Claus to Tempe Beach Park
7:00 p.m. Boat Parade Begins
Free Admission for Spectators
Light up the night and be dazzled at the Valley’s most unique holiday event---the Tempe Fantasy of Lights Boat Parade at Tempe Town Lake, featuring as many as 50 festively lighted boats of all sizes, all celebrating “Winter Wonderland,” and special guest Santa Claus who will hear children’s gift requests in Tempe Beach Park.
It’s the only time of the year that motorized vessels are allowed on the lake. Individuals, families and groups are invited to add to Tempe’s holiday tradition by entering their people-powered, wind-powered, or motorized and festively decorated and lighted boats. The METRO Tempe Town Lake Bridge’s 1,645-foot span, which connects the East Valley and central Phoenix portions of the light rail system, once again will delight audiences with its programmed LED display.
We could meet at 5:00 for a bite to eat and then walk over, or just go for the parade and meet at 6:00 instead.
