Holiday lights danced across Lake Mead on Saturday at the annual Christmas Parade of Lights.

Presented by the Lake Mead Boat Owners Association, the parade featured dozens of boats ornamented with festive light displays and characters. Its path took them around Pyramid Island and past Boulder Beach, where a crowd waited and watched.

The association handed out numerous awards for different boat classes and display themes, along with three awards for best presentation. Miss Teen USA Nevada Ashley Brown assisted the judges.

The winners were:

Overall Best of Show: "Invader," captained by Cliff Cruz.

President's Trophy: "Untitled," captained by Butch Jones.

Chairman's Trophy: "Over the Limit," captained by Patrick McGough.
