Thousands of spectators thronged Camana Bay Saturday night for the annual Parade of Lights, which saw brilliantly decorated boats strut their stuff in the harbor as fireworks exploded overhead.
Thirteen boats took part in the parade, the theme of which this year was Christmas stories.
The “Big Boat” award went to Red Sail Sports with its underwater theme that featured creatures of the deep, such as stingrays and seahorses.
Beachcomber won the “Small Boat” award, with its vessel decked out in a Christmas castaway theme.
The Parade of Lights is organized annually by Cayman 27, which broadcast a live telecast of the event. The TV station’s Janelle Muttoo and Kevin Morales were emcees for the evening.
This year’s judges were Markus Mueri, owner of Abacus restaurant at Camana Bay; Jason Howard, host of On-Air with Jason Howard on Z99FM; Tonie Chisholm, former Miss Cayman Islands and a host on Cayman 27’s morning show “Daybreak”; and Matthew Sloane, co-host of “The Morning Bob” with Brad and Matty on Bob FM.
