The Yacht Club changed the date of the annual Lighted Boat Parade at the request of the participants, who do all the work to put on the beautiful show for the residents and visitors to San Carlos.
THEY also want to enjoy Christmas Eve at home with their families, instead of working the whole time.  When checking with yacht clubs in the USA, none could be found who do their lighted parade on Christmas Eve.  And they have much larger participation because of that.


In addition, an extra night has been added, so there are two nights to view the parade.


I hope everyone enjoys the parade on Dec 21 and 22nd. (Thanks for the correction, Teresita)


It is believed there will be even more boat participants this year because it will NOT be on Christmas Eve.


Happy Holidays! 👍

I highly doubt they did it at the request of the participants. We participated the last five years and were not asked. We will not be participating in the future due to the poor way in which the parade was run last year and now with this change. That is too early for me to come down and get my boat ready. I'll use my boat lights to decorate my house and save the couple hundred dollars that I paid my captain to help decorate the boat and drive it. We'll go diving instead so he will still make money.

Believe what you will, no matter to me.


Since I am one of the directors of the board of the SCYC, I have more factual, inside information than you do.


Enjoy the Lighted Boat Parade either or both nights this year! 😎🎉

You may have information, so please tell me as a five-year participant why I wasn't asked? Doesn't matter, as I am out of there permanently. Poor management by the club.

Why would you change up such an awesome tradition?? What do Yacht clubs in the USA have to do with Nuevo Guaymas?


Was there an HOA violation?

Woops, wrong dates quoted in this one, 21st and 22nd, Sat. & Sun nights.   Mexican families celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve and I think they did this for many of the Captains and crew,  so they could spend Christmas with their families.   Sad for folks who had already made travel plans, but for the future, shouldn't be a big deal to move up plans by a couple of days.

I think they did it for the Yacht Club members, who didn't want to bother with it on Christmas Eve. My boat captain, and his brother, both loved doing the parade on Christmas Eve. They brought their kids and friends along to ride in the parade. I always asked them if this was interfering with their family plans, and they said no, they loved doing it on Christmas Eve to start off their festivities.

But that's why I said I was said sad family and friends coming down would have already bought there tickets in most cases. Should have told us sooner or made it start next year very poor management.

I think the people who do all the work have the right to pick the date and time. Saturday and Sunday will work just fine for me. I am happy they continue to do it.

Mexicans celebrate Christmas at midnight on Christmas eve. I use to love doing the boat parade with my husband who was a boat captain. Sad to see it change. I do not know one captain that didn't enjoy it.

I agree that the lighted boat parade is an absolute San Carlos Christmas Eve tradition. We have enjoyed every one on Christmas Eve. I truly think the change will be destructive. It couldn't happen without the boat owners sacrifices. But it also won't happen without the folks cheering from the beaches and the restaurants? Why was 390 Pony/Tiburon Ballena not included or asked during decision making? The parade may be run by a board but sort of belongs to the San Carlos Community? I gotta agree with Guzzi, sad and LTR as well, captains enjoyed parading more than anyone.

We help out at an adult English class in Guaymas. We announced the change and most were excited about it being on the weekend. They said it gives them an opportunity to come and see it with their families. On Christmas Eve they have their own family traditions which often includes a late dinner and the preparations that involves.

If this is the time that the people who put all the work into planning, decorating and participating want then so be it. I can easily adapt.

this statement is profound and good advice!
people are adaptable and can conform! if it works this will be the new norm! if it doesn't, it can be changed back to Christmas Eve!


the holiday season starts with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years!
 it's a time for comfort and joy! it's about peace and happiness, let us not forget!

I would like to know what the boat owners actually think about it. I already know of four of us who are against it.
