Jackson Creek Christmas Cruise

Dec 9, 2017 4:30 pm - Dec 9, 2017 8:00 pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO:   Saturday, December 9th due to the rain/snow mix forecast expected on Friday.

The Jackson Creek Christmas Cruise is a tradition for those who live by the river.  It’s a wonderful way to re-connect with the magic of Christmas during the busy holiday season. We invite you to experience it!

On Friday, December 8 (rain date, December 9th), there will be four cruises: 4:30, 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 pm. Best to arrive at the Deltaville Community Center at least 15 minutes early. Forty-five tickets will be available for each cruise. Tickets for adults (anyone over 12) are $8. Children 12 and under are admitted free of charge but must have a ticket and be accompanied by an adult. The Community Center will close at 8pm this year so if you are on the 7:30 cruise, come early for cookies and cider before your cruise. All others are welcome to stay until 8 pm.

Tickets include a roundtrip hayride from the Deltaville Community Center to the town dock, an approximate 45 minute boat ride (dress warm-it gets chilly and windy) on either the M.V. Bethpager or M.V. Rob-Ann-Jay, and free homemade cookies and warm cider at the Deltaville Community Center.

The DCA will again have a contest for the best homemade cookie, bar, or sweet at the Cruise. There will be two prizes: a $50 Gift Certificate from J & W Seafood for the entry judged “best” and a $50 Gift Certificate from Nauti Nell’s for the People’s choice award. The rules are simple. Your creation must be homemade, you need to fill out a brief descriptive form, and you must deliver your entry to the DCA Community Center by 4 PM December 8. Multiple entries are allowed. Winners are encouraged to share their recipes.

Tickets must be purchased in person, and are available on November 9th at J & W Seafood and Nauti Nell’s on a first come, first served basis (no mail order or phone purchases will be permitted). Any tickets not sold before the event will be available at the door, but usually the cruises sell out early.

The Rappahannock River Railroad Club will have their display of model trains set-up in the Deltaville Community Center. Children of all ages will delight in watching the model trains run the course.

Residents of Lovers Lane and on Jackson Creek will have beautifully lighted holiday decorations of their waterfront properties for a magical evening. Main Street will be decorated and luminaries are promised for the festive Coastal Christmas cruise!

If you have questions call Raynell Smith 804-815-3102. If you would like to volunteer to decorate or bake cookies, call Marsha Norton at 804-815-1071 and if you can help at the dock call Lud Kimbrough 804-514-5858.

Get your tickets now. Tickets always sell out and go fast! Don’t be disappointed.
