Beaufort welcomed in the holidays over a fabulous weekend. The weather was gorgeous and good cheer abounded.
The annual event started on Dec. 1 with choirs, dance groups, the Christmas tree lighting and a visit from St. Nick.
On Dec. 2, the annual Light Up the Night Boat Parade, put on by the Beaufort Sail and Power Squadron and Main Street Beaufort, USA, was a magical display of decorated boats ambling up the Beaufort River in the Light Up the Night Boat Parade at the Waterfront Park.
In the 24-foot category, the winner was Fish Hippie with a Winter Wonderland theme and captained by Terrence Geitner. In the boats over 24 feet, the winner was Career Opportunities with a Mickey’s Winter Wonderland theme captained by Chris Collins.
Then on Dec. 3, the traditional Beaufort Christmas Parade was held through the streets of downtown Beaufort.
