5th Annual Lake Norman Lighted Christmas Boat Parade

by | Dec 7, 2023

Hello, Lake Norman community and friends! It’s that time of the year again when our beautiful lake transforms into a sparkling wonderland of lights and holiday cheer. I’m Susie Skog, your local real estate agent, and I’m thrilled to talk about an event that holds a special place in our hearts – the 5th Annual Lake Norman Lighted Christmas Boat Parade. This year’s parade promises to be a festive spectacle, and I’m here to share all the details with you.

A Festive Journey from Blythe Landing to Ramsey Creek Park

The parade will commence from the picturesque Blythe Landing, weaving its magical path across the lake to Ramsey Creek Park. Imagine the sight: boats adorned with twinkling lights and holiday decorations, reflecting off the water and lighting up the night sky. It’s a scene straight out of a holiday card!

A Special Appearance by Santa at Duke Energy Explorium

The excitement doesn’t end with the parade of lights. Prepare for a heartwarming finale as Santa Claus makes a grand appearance at the Duke Energy Explorium. This is a moment that children and adults alike look forward to every year. The joy and laughter Santa brings are truly the epitome of holiday spirit.

Spreading Joy with TOYS for Little Smiles

In the spirit of giving, this event also supports a cause close to our hearts – TOYS for Little Smiles. This wonderful non-profit group collects toy donations during the parade to brighten the lives of children at Levine Children’s Hospital. Every toy donated goes directly to a child in need. I encourage everyone attending to bring along a toy and help spread the holiday cheer to these brave and beautiful children.

Join Us for an Evening of Festive Fun

The parade kicks off at 5:30 p.m. and will wrap up by 7 p.m., giving you plenty of time to enjoy the spectacle and the company of fellow community members. It’s a fantastic way to engage with our community, enjoy the festive season, and create lasting memories with friends and family.

A Reminder to Make Merry Responsibly

As we immerse ourselves in the festivities, let’s also remember to celebrate responsibly. Safety is paramount, both for those participating in the parade and for our spectators. Let’s ensure this event remains a joyful and safe experience for everyone involved.


The 5th Annual Lake Norman Lighted Christmas Boat Parade is more than just a celebration; it’s a symbol of our community’s warmth, generosity, and festive spirit. As your local real estate agent, I’m not just excited to witness this event but also proud to be part of a community that comes together in such beautiful ways. So, mark your calendars, bring a toy, and join us for an evening that promises to be nothing short of magical. See you there!
