Boat-Lighting Ceremony Tonight

Cap'n Everett Street's annual boat-lighting ceremony will take place today, Wednesday, December 10th, at 7:30 p.m., outside the Rusty Scupper Family Seafood Restaurant. The ceremony commemorates the loss of Cap'n Everett's favorite fishing boat, which was destroyed by fire during a holiday party in 1967. Every year since then, on the anniversary of the disaster, the Cap'n has lit a small model of that boat and set it afloat on the estuary while reciting nautical poetry. As usual, the famous Dancing Sea Cucumbers will be there to perform one of their lively jigs to the music of the "Ja und das ist Polka!" band. It's fun for the whole family, and there is plenty of free parking.
