The Eagle Mountain Lake Parade of Lights a holiday tradition for over 35 years!
The 2021 parade was the largest ever, and we expect 2022 to be bigger even more creative! The 2022 Eagle Mountain Lake Parade of Lights will be held on Saturday, November 26th at sundown. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held on either Sunday November 27th or Saturday, December 3rd. This is a fun family and community event to celebrate the holidays and to celebrate Eagle Mountain Lake. Save Eagle Mountain Lake (SEML) has been a proud sponsor and benefactor for the parade for well over a decade. One of the key objectives of SEML is to engage the community in partnerships that foster the quality of Eagle Mountain Lake, with the overarching goal of saving and protecting our lake for future generations.
HOLIDAY SPIRIT: This years’ parade also includes a benefit for the Marine Toys-for-Tots program. Donation boxes can be found in front of the Front Desk inside the Clubhouse. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
PARADE ROUTE: The parade of boats decorated with holiday lights, along with enthusiastic and well adorned crew members will depart West Bay Marina at sundown, travel just north of Lakeview Marina and pause for the fireworks display. The parade will then head south toward Pelican Island and continue toward the Azle side of the lake until reaching Eagle Mountain Marina and Augie’s. The route will then continue around the bend to Twin Points Park, turn to the north past Fort Worth Boat Club, and then continue along the route indicated on the map to Carter Slough and then to Harbor One Marina.
NOW is the time to register your boat (big or small we welcome them all!), get your crew together, and begin to plan your decorations. There are prizes (aka bragging rights) for boats in each of the following categories:
26’ and under
27’ and up
Sailboats (...the best category)
There are also prizes for the fan-favorite and the best crew costumes.
VIEWING: The lake is open to boaters however we request that you maintain a safe distance from the parade route. The BEST viewing location is right here at Fort Worth Boat Club - exclusively available to FWBC members and their guests.
