The Richmond Yacht Club is presenting the annual Parade of Lights this weekend, with donations encouraged to benefit local families in need.

Decorated vessels will be on parade between the Middle Arm Bridge and the Dinsmore Bridge from 6 to 8 p.m. on both Saturday, Dec. 15, and Sunday, Dec. 16.

The best spot to view the vessels, adorned with Christmas lights, reindeers, Santas and other holiday decor, is from the Richmond Yacht Club, 7471 River Rd., where everything from hot dogs, hot chocolate, and cookies will be served up to raise funds for the Richmond Christmas Fund.

Providing entertainment is the Richmond Singers Choir and the Salvation Army Band, as well as traditional holiday music and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Admission is by donation of food and/or unwrapped children's gifts (no stuffed toys, please).

Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated vessel.
