SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah Christmas season is in full swing! The annual boat parade of lights set sail Saturday evening with more than 60 sailboats and yachts floating down the Savannah River, each competing for the best holiday décor.

After the parade, fireworks lit up the night sky. Visitors came from all around with family and friends to kick off their Christmas season.

"I think anytime that you can have children outside, where they can walk and run and play and see things that they don't normally get to see every day, it starts to get them into the Christmas spirit. Santa is here, which is always exciting for the kids, so we decided this would be a great time for us to come out here," said Cassie Freeman

Visitors also got the chance to check out a gingerbread village inside the Westin Riverfront Resort.
