YARMOUTH, N.S. – There were only four boats entered in the annual Yarmouth Seafest Rudder's Parade of Lights this year but what a show they put on in Yarmouth's harbour.

Brightly decorated vessels dazzled onlookers with a spectacular fireworks display.

The judges ranked the entries as follows:

Commercial boat: 1st: Rudder's; 2nd: Seafest Festival; 3rd: Yarmouth Sea Products

Pleasure boat: 1st: Seafest pageant.

The Vanguard covered the Parade of Lights from two vantage points. Tina Comeau shot photos and video from one of the floating docks in the harbour. You can see her photos and video in this posting.
