The James River Parade of Lights is scheduled to take place on December 10, 2016 from 6 - 9 pm.

The parade will begin in the Upper James River at the Rockett's Landing and end at Dutch Gap.

Each year, boaters decorate their boats and converge on the James River for a parade that marks the beginning of the holiday season. The parade also features free entertainment at viewing sites.

Viewing sites near Richmond include Libby Hill Park, Osborne Park and Boat Landing, Dutch Gap Boat Landing, and Henricus Historical Park.

The James River Parade of Lights is presented by the James River Advisory Council. For more information, visit
