Boating festival of Christmas lights floats again
HOUMA - Boats decorated with festive Christmas lights for the holiday season will take once more to the waters ahead of Christmas.
The Courier reports the Ala Bayou Terrebonne Christmas Boat Parade takes place Saturday. The decorated boats float about three miles from Bourg to Humble Canal in Montegut.
The parade started in 1988.
Parade organizer Kevin Belanger and his family and friends usually get together around the holidays to decorate their boats. It generally takes about three days to rig up the boats with lights and decorations.
