Many people growing up throughout Newfoundland can remember the joy of driving through the different communities and taking in the display of Christmas lights. One tradition that I shared with my children and my husband each Christmas was to take the drive to the picturesque town Port de Grave to see the spectacular glow of the Christmas lights from the many decorated boats in the harbour.
2018 marks the 20th year for the annual boat lighting in the town of Port de Grave which involves 50 to 60 boats fully decorated with the glow of Christmas. Each year thousands of people flock to the Port de Grave harbour to take in the view and to participate in the annual festivities of this scenic fishing community. Whether it’s the boat lighting in Port de Grave, or lighting traditions in your own community, there is nothing quite like the glow of Christmas lights to get you in the spirit of Christmas.
From our home to yours, may your Christmas is merry and bright!
