Why wait until it gets freezing cold to enjoy some boats lighting up the waterfront? September is our nicest weather on the Central Coast, and Baywood is the idyllic setting for this amazing event! 

3:00 - 6:00 - Baywood Art Show: Prepare to be amazed as local artist Ted Emrick guides your senses through this year’s show: Tangible Vibration. Start your Baywood day immersed in art in the beautiful bayside gardens of the Blue Heron Baywood Restaurant. 

6:00 - 9:00 - Baywood Lighted Boat Parade! Light up your kayak, canoe, sailboat SUP, or other small boat and light up the Baywood waterfront as you compete for some amazing prizes... 
Live music on the pier by local sensation Dante Marsh!

Tide info:
Low tide: 2.9’ at 11:52AM
High tide: 5.28’ at 6:00PM
Low tide: 0.23’ at 1:29AM
What does this mean?
Well, you’ll be able to launch & navigate your kayak, canoe, SUP, etc. all day. For bigger boats, depending on your draft, you should be able to get in and out by mid afternoon and EVERYONE should be off the water by 10PM if you don’t want to get stuck on the mud as the tide goes out.

LOADING IN & OUT: We’ll have a loading zone open by the Baywood Pier. Please be as efficient as possible in loading in and out - we’re expecting LOTS of boats. You can also help by boating over from Cuesta Inlet, Pasadena Point, State Park Marina, etc.

Do not miss what some are calling the best little community event EVER!  

Get creative with your watercraft & see you there!!!!
