Normally each Christmas season, between 30 and 40 thousand people visit the Port de Grave Boat Lights. The tradition, which is now in its 22nd year, started with a lone fisherman lighting up his boat during Christmas, and grew steadily over the years.
While usually celebrated with an opening ceremony, due to the COVID-19 mayhem, 2020’s ceremony will take place virtually. It’s scheduled for 6:30pm on Friday, December 11th.
The Port de Grave Harbour will indeed be lit up as usual, from December 11th until January 6th. You can still head out to take a look, organizers just ask that you’re cautious and aware of the COVID-19 guidelines. Stay in your bubble and avoid talking moistly.
