Magic Ferry to Lead Portland Parade of Lights

Maine’s Portland Harbor will glow this Saturday, Dec. 18, during the annual Parade of Lights. Commercial and pleasure craft bedecked in holiday finery will cruise the inner harbor to celebrate winter and the holidays with a boat parade, led by a Casco Bay Line ferry.

Unfortunately, unless you’re sailing on a private boat, you’ll need to watch the parade from shore, as tickets aboard the ferry are sold out. Proceeds from the ferry tickets will be used to benefit the community sailing programs of SailMaine.


  • When: Parade begins at 4:45 p.m.
  • Where: Portland Inner Harbor
