Belton's Dead Fish Grill hosted its 4th Annual Parade of Lights on Sunday, Dec. 4 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Cold and rainy weather did not stop residents from the surrounding communities to gather on the decks that provided the perfect opportunity to view the one-of-a-kind parade. Thirteen Christmas themed boats filled Lake Belton with holiday cheer.

The Parade of Lights is not just a parade but a contest as well. Four local judges judged the boats on originality, the enthusiasm of the people on the boat, and how well they utilized lights. Winner wins an $100 gift certificate and an award.
