06 Dec A Magical Night on the S.S. Lane Victory
The 2018 Holiday Afloat Viewing Party on the S.S. Lane Victory was an amazing success. The ship’s crew provided complimentary Chilli Mac and Mac and Cheese. There was also a hot coco and coffee filling station to keep the guests warm on this chilly night.
In spite of the heavy winds, we had two great caroling groups on board that were able to project over the mighty gusts. Meet Up group, Joyful Noise, and a handful of choir members from Trinity Lutheran in San Pedro took turns pleasing the guests with their favorite Christmas classics.
The parade itself was wonderful featuring many different boat styles and sizes decked out with vivid lights and Christmas themed decor. The crowd was in constant awe with each passing boat. The boats were showing off for us this year as we were one of the official judging spots for the parade. Those duties were carried out by a local Girl Scout troop.
Overall, everyone had a fantastic time. From the boats, to the coco and carolers, it was another wonderful year for our viewing party. This was only our second time holding an elaborate viewing party and 2019 promises to be even bigger and better!
