(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - Ketchikan Indian Community and SEAPRO are spearheading the return of Ketchikan's annual Christmas Boat Parade of Lights.  For 24 years the community enjoyed Christmas lights on vessels from small to large on Tongass Narrows.  Then in 2010 the event didn’t happen.  It’s back for 2011!

Residents will see large vessels from SEAPRO, U.S. Coast Guard, AMAK Towing and more.  Recreational boat owners are encouraged to participate.  The event is scheduled for Sunday December 18th around 5pm.  Parade line-up will get underway at Ward Cove starting at 4:30pm.

There are no entry fees and no judges.  KIC and SEAPRO wanted to keep the event as simple as possible so Ketchikan residents would again be able to enjoy the event with their friends and family.  

For questions about participation call Tony Azure at Ketchikan Indian Community 228-9390 or Dave at SEAPRO 225-7002.
