ADEL, GA (WALB) –You can see a Christmas parade on water at a South Georgia state park this weekend.

Reed Bingham State Park is holding its fourth annual boat parade. It's part of the "Christmas with Friends" festival.

 If you want to decorate your boat and compete for a cash prize, you still have time to sign up.

 Santa is also expected to arrive by boat. The only fee is for parking. There's no charge to participate in the activities.

 "One lady I talked to yesterday from Tifton is bringing her extended family two or three car loads of people because economically they can't do some of the things they wanted to do," said Chet Powell, Reed Bingham State Park.

Workers dug holes for bonfires Friday. They'll also be hayrides and live music. The activities begin Saturday night at 7 p.m. and boat parade starts at 7:30.
