Chattanooga 2012 Lighted Boat Parade

It would not be Christmas on the Tennessee River without the annual Chattanooga Lighted Boat parade. After the Holiday Starlight parade was over, everyone walked just a bit to the Tennessee River at Ross' Landing to watch the boat parade. This year's parade was sponsored by Marine Max and was followed by a fantastic fireworks display. We left the street parade early in order to get seats for the boat parade (I am a boat enthusiast). This was actually a good idea because we were able to set on the concrete seats overlooking the river instead of in the grass. Below are a few pictures of my favorite boats. Please note, these are moving boats at night some of the pics are blurry but you will get the picture.
