Christmas Season Starts

Saturday night, December 8th, saw the unofficial kickoff of the Christmas holiday season in San Pedro when hundreds of people lined the shore and witnessed the annual lighted boat parade. The center of the evening was at Sandbar on Boca del Rio. Eleven boats participated in the biggest show yet! We had the great pleasure of being aboard YOLO with a large group of other revelers. All of us paid to join the fun, with the proceeds going to local charities! Many thanks to Kristina Rambo Harris at Island Dream Tours - YOLO for making the evening an unforgettable one and helping our local community!
