    The Grand Illumination Parade cruise, scheduled this year over the November 23rd weekend, a change from the usual 3rd weekend on November date. The Grand Illumination Parade cruise is an annual celebration of the kickoff of the holiday season, and signals the unofficial end of the 2019 cruising season.

    The City of Norfolk, and Waterside roll out the welcome mat for boaters to celebrate the holidays, where the spirit of the city comes alive. Skippers, crews, and guests are encouraged to create new traditions while enjoying fun holiday events, festivals, music and local cuisine.

    Enjoy Warm treats with friends, see the twinkling Christmas lights, shop for that perfect gift and celebrate the with the parade participants. And if traveling my land yacht, you can book our Grand Illumination Parade cruise weekend stay with a discount holiday special at the Hilton Norfolk The Main.  Just mention that you are with the Grand Illumination Parade cruise when booking and checking in. and make memories to last a lifetime.

    Many skippers from several clubs sail from their home ports to rendezvous at Waterside marina in Norfolk to watch the parade and enjoy warm cider, hot toddies, and other hot libations aboard host boats. With the weekend forecast typically calling for winds in the 10-15 knot range, the jaunt from Hampton typically takes not much more than 2-3 hours sailing time.

    Looking forward to meeting old friends, and making new ones, at the 2019 Grand Illumination Holiday Parade Cruise, November 22-24th.

    Place it on your calendar now, for weekend of November 22-24 for this year's Grand Illumination Parade cruise. Make sure and call Waterside marina early at (757) 625-3625 and we will see you there!
