OUTSIDE

Eastport Yacht Club Light Parade

More than 50 boats will line the Annapolis waterfront Saturday. Each skipper will illuminate his or her craft with a theme for the public to enjoy. Prior entries have included Finding Nemo, Spongebob's Key West Christmas and Frosty the Snowman. Spectators line the waterfront to watch the glowing parade - the event has attracted crowds of 20,000 to 30,000 people in the past.

The parade is Saturday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. One fleet circles in front of Eastport Yacht Club, the City Dock and the Naval Academy seawall and the other fleet circles the length of Spa Creek, inside the bridge. Parking is $5. For more information, visit eastportyc.org.

HOLIDAY

Merry Tuba Christmas

The tuba and euphonium are stereotyped as players of simple bass-line beats. These big brass instruments get a chance to take the melodic spotlight on Saturday. More than 200 professional and amateur horn players from across the country will line Harborplace's Amphitheatre and perform favorite holiday tunes. Each player will dress in a uniform that depicts his or her hometown.

A Merry Tuba Christmas is Saturday from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Harborplace's Amphitheatre at Pratt and Light streets. For details, visit www.harborplace.com.
