So, the City of Napa, CA. Does a Christmas parade every year, been doing it for 55 years now, and lots of the local groups and businesses enter floats and what have you in one of three categories...Theme, Music, or Lights. For whatever ungodly reason, our ski club decided to enter for fun and show some Lake spirit. The organizers had never heard of our club (we have only been around since 1958), but they let us enter and wished us luck. The following pics show the transformation of our 200 in the daylight hours to the epic brightly lit sleighboat we created.

 

We took First Place in the Best Lights category.....not bad for a bunch of dumb buoy chasers!

@Wish, we had an old set of wooden doubles, stripped the bindings, found LED strip lights online and glued the strips along the edge of the skis. We also laced LED Xmas lights down the length of the ropes to the handles and the kids had a blast getting towed down Main St with the crowd going crazy with our spectacle. At one point the music cut out due to a blown power strip, the whole block of people gave out a big "oohhh", we reset the power strip and the crowd gave a big "woohoo" when the music kicked back on again. It really was fun time for the club members and the kids had a ball.
