PARADE VIEWING LOCATIONS FOR 2015
Gold Star Beach– Parade kicks off at 6:00PM and the official starting line is at Harbor Boating Club on West Shore Road. (Harbor Boating Club is a private club.) The boat staging area is in front of Gold Star beach so it’s a great spot to watch the beginning of the parade. Arrive early so you don’t miss the 6PM start.
The boats will go up the channel past Huntington Yacht Club (private club) and on the west side of the channel past West Shore Marina (private marina).
Another great viewing location is at the town boat ramp on Mill Dam Rd. There is ample parking across the street at the Mill Dam ball fields.
Boats will continue past Mill Dam boat ramp, past Coney’s Marina (private marina) and then past Prime.
See Prime’s website for information about viewing the parade at Prime or Harbor Club at Prime. They are running special events for the boat parade.
Next to Harbor Club at Prime (across from Tutto Pazzo) is a Town of Huntington Parking Lot. There will be bleachers in this parking lot for viewing the parade but LIMITED PARKING. ARRIVE EARLY!!!
The boats will then pass the Town of Huntington Marina in Halesite. This area is CLOSED due to construction. There is NO PARKING OR VIEWING AVAILABLE AT HALESITE MARINA.
Boats will then pass the park behind the Halesite Fire Department. This is a great viewing area, however there are less than 20 parking spots so again, ARRIVE EARLY!!!
Just past Halesite Fire Department on East Shore Road is another town park. Again, limited parking but a great view.
The boats will proceed past both parks and back to Huntington Yacht Club (private club) which is the official FINISH line.
Please look for official lighthouse volunteers (bearing a Lighthouse badge) at the suggested viewing areas (IN BOLD ABOVE) who will be collecting donations for the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society as well as selling official Lighthouse holiday ornaments and parade souvenirs. If you would like to make a donation to the Huntington Lighthouse, please go to www.huntingtonlighthouse.org
