3 to See: A Boat Parade, Victorian Christmas Music, and Snowshoeing

Boat Parade

Help Gig Harbor shine bright this Saturday evening during the Lighted Boat Parade. All boats are invited to decorate with lights and float in the parade, making two laps around the harbor. Homes and businesses surrounding the harbor are encouraged to decorate. See further details and sign up to participate on the Gig Harbor Yacht Club website.


You don’t have to be an expert at winter sports to get out and enjoy the snow and mountains. There are several trails to choose from when snowshoeing on Mount Rainier, from short beginner treks to more strenuous hikes. The mild sport can be enjoyed all winter long on the mountain; snowshoe rentals are available, too. Check out the various trails, rental equipment locations on Mount Rainier, and tips here.
