SAVANNAH, GA – November 19, 2020 – Greenbriar Children’s Center has been selected by the Savannah Harbor Foundation to receive a portion of the proceeds from the Savannah River Boat Cruise’s Georgia Queen event at the annual Savannah Boat Parade of Lights on November 28 from 7-9 p.m.
During this annual event, over 40 boats will be decorated in true holiday fashion to parade down the riverfront at 7 p.m., culminating in a spectacular firework show. Leading the way for the Boat Parade of Lights, the iconic Georgia Queen Riverboat invites guests to enjoy festive food, drink, and entertainment. This socially distanced event will also provide a few surprises for boarders as they enjoy the one-of-a-kind views of the river lit with Christmas decorations.
“We are extremely grateful for Savannah Riverboat Cruises for generously donating a portion of the Parade Cruise proceeds to our organization. We are also thankful for the continual support from the Savannah Harbor Foundation for including Greenbriar in their spectacular Boat Parade of Lights,” said Executive Director Gena Taylor. “Every year, we enjoy getting in the holiday spirit as we watch the elaborate boats sail by on the Savannah River – all while celebrating our mission of nurturing children and strengthening families in our community. We encourage individuals and families to join us in the wonderful night of fun.”
Tickets for the Riverboat cruise are $68.95 per person and can be purchased online at https://savannahriverboat.com/seasonal-cruise-reservation/. The Boat Parade of Lights is free and open to the public. Open seating for the boat parade will be set up at Martin Luther King Jr. Park with viewing available all along the riverwalk.
