Due to the fire, there were fewer boats participating in this year’s Annual Ventura Harbor Parade of Lights. However, it still produced a host of wonderfully decorated boats. and winners for their spectacular, decorated boats.
At the subsequent Boaters Award Brunch held on Sunday, December 17, awardees offered a portion of their winnings to the victims of the Thomas Fire. We consider them to all be winners for participating. Many of the boaters’ friends who lost their homes are now sleeping in their boats. Photos by Michael Gordon.
