Trees in the Rigging

November 25, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Lighted Boat Parade

The holiday season kicks off in Essex with the annual TREES IN THE RIGGING Boat Parade.
This annual event includes a traditional, lantern-lit carol stroll down Main Street where spectators are invited to bring their own lanterns or flashlights and join in on the fun. The stroll steps off at 4:00 pm at the Essex Town Hall on West Avenue and ends at the Connecticut River Museum with a parade of vessels dressed out in holiday lights and passing in review along the Connecticut River. The best viewing is from the lawn of the Connecticut River Museum at the foot of Main Street. Santa and his elves will arrive by one of the parade boats for visits with children on the lawn of the Museum.

Sponsored by: Connecticut River Museum, Essex Historical Society & Essex Board of Trade.
