The 37-year-old tradition of the Lake Havasu City Boat Parade of Lights unfolded beneath the London Bridge in the Bridgewater Channel Saturday night.

Spectators lined both sides of the Channel as the more than 80 entries floated by. The iconic Dixie Belle joined the parade again this year after being fully restored to all her glory.

Under new organizer JJ Gibbs, in addition to the parade, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office chased the Grinch out of the Channel insisting that no more Christmas joy was to be stolen.
