Bright Lights Big City

FREE MOORAGE! That's right the Executives running the marina in our fair city have seen fit in order to celebrate everyone's favorite Christian holiday, Christmas, they will be offering free moorage for those so inclined. Here's how it works.
As part of the Anacortes Coastal Christmas party mariners are invited to voyage on over to "C" dock Dec 16th-19th and be a festive component of the Deck the Docks celebration. Simply deck out your yacht in holiday garlands and lights. and come join the fun. Several activities are planned.
* Celtic Christmas Celebration at the Transit Shed (can someone please rename this place?) Wednesday night
* The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at ACT Thurs-Sat
* Live music at watering holes throughout town
* Cocoa crawl and public viewing of the yachts Saturday from 1600-1930
Historically, back when a man could make a living fishing in this town, the local fleet would turn out for a parade down Guemes Channel. Sounds simple enough right, just follow the leader. Well it never was. Add foul weather, alcohol and egos, along with horsepower and  darkness and well let's just say maybe this was a holiday tradition the just couldn't be lost to the sands of time soon enough:)
Reserve your spot today! Call 360 293 0694,listen to the hold music (Classical Gas) until someone picks up the phone and come join the merriment.
