Christmas in the -Bouffe annual event

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The Tchoutacabouffa River was lit up Saturday night with boats celebrating the holiday spirit.

Your Mama’z House held its 8th annual Christmas in the 'Bouffa Lighted Boat Parade. Fourteen boats, decked out for Christmas, hit the water to raise money for Crusaders for Veterans.

“It’s fun. It’s not a big huge production, but it’s like hometown fun. Everybody that’s here on the weekends decorated their boats. It’s growing bigger every year. It seems like we increase by a boat or two. We’re up to, I think, 14 boats this year," said Your Mama’z House manager Andrea Borst.

The event raises thousands of dollars for veterans. There were also prizes for best decoration and for the boat who does the best job incorporating something military related into their decor.
