Bring your homemade boat or floating creation to a community celebration of light & magic! Manson’s Lagoon spit on Wednesday, December 27, at 5:00 pm. Young and old, locals and visitors, merry of heart; please leave 4-legged friends at home.
Make sure that your boat or creation is earth-friendly: use wood, paper bags, tissue paper; you can replace the aluminum casing around tealights with shortened toilet paper rolls. Be simple or elaborate; tealights on a flat board work well, but check that your boat floats. Bring matches and wear gumboots. The tide will be ebbing out, so boats may be launched inside or outside the lagoon off Manson’s spit.
Please park in the parking lot to keep car lights off the lagoon and minimize erosion around the lagoon shore.
May hearts lighten and be joyous!!
Set for the high seas.
