A cannon boomed and the lights flickered on. One boat was decked in classic white strands around its rails with red Christmas bows on every pole. It and the rest of the Bird Key Yacht club boats let their little lights shine after a ceremonial blessing from Rev. Red Robinson, of Church of the Redeemer Episcopal, on Saturday, Dec. 3. Attendees enjoyed cocktails before the lighting of the fleet, and followed the ceremony with a dinner.
