Free hot chocolate and Christmas lights on boats?  Yes please!

If you’re looking for an event to get into the holiday spirit this weekend, head down to the inner harbour this Friday, for the annual light-up of the boats.

According to the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority, there will be approximately 25-35 boats lit up at the Causeway Marina and Fisherman’s Wharf, with the majority at the Causeway marina.

People are invited to walk the docks between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. this Friday, November 25th to explore the lighted vessels.

Free hot chocolate will be handed out on a first come, first served basis at the causeway Marina Dock, below the Fairmont Empress in downtown Victoria.

Most boats will already be lit up or will be lit up just before the event kicks off. The vessels will remain lit up for the duration of the holiday season.
