Ketchikan, Alaska - The 24th Annual Boat Parade was held Sunday in Ketchikan. Participating boats gathered for the start of the parade at Peninsula Point , north of Ketchikan, with the parade heading south on the Tongass Narrows. The boats decorated brightly for the Christmas parade, traveled past downtown Ketchikan Sunday afternoon on their parade route south to the Coast Guard base and Saxman.

The boats then returned to downtown Ketchikan before ending the parade. The annual parade was enjoyed from the shoreline, from homes and from boats.
