Christmas in Nashville. There’s so much going on, and its hard to experience everything in one season.
The Nashville boating community is a great group of folks, consisting of boaters from the Cumberland River, Old Hickory Lake, and Percy Priest Lake. While many decorate their homes, there are others that decorate their boats.
And then there are some groups that go all out for the season. One such group is the Rock Harbor Yacht Club, who kicked off the Fifth Annual “Dock Crawl” this past weekend at Rock Harbor Marina. If you are a boater, or enjoy boating, this is a must-do event.
This year’s celebration centered around various crock pots and platters, followed by specialty drinks at each boat. Afterwards, the group crawled to the club house for karaoke, a true sight to behold!
While this event provided a good time to all, it also served the needs of many area children. Every participant donated a toy, or a $10 donation, to Toys For Tots.
We were glad to be able to make the trip down from Blackjack Cove Marina on Old Hickory Lake to enjoy this year’s dock crawl. It was great to see visiting boats on The Great Loop also in attendance. Rock Harbor welcomes transient boaters all year round and is just minutes from downtown Nashville!
If you are considering “The Great Loop” trip on your boat, make it a point to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Cumberland River and Old Hickory Lake during your voyage! If you come to downtown Nashville’s Riverfront Park for New Year’s Eve 2011, we’ll see you there! And so will Lynrd Sknyrd!
Now, enjoy the sights of Rock Harbor Yacht Club’s 2011 Dock Crawl:
