This year’s parade features festively decorated boats with the theme “Saluting our Military on the Historic James”, chosen to honor the many men and women serving our country. The boats cruise the parade course from Richmond to Chesterfield and Henrico counties with spectators from throughout the region that gather at several official viewing locations. The event, sponsored by the James River Advisory Council, has become a cherished holiday tradition.
