At 6 pm on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings from Dec. 1 until Dec. 23, families can ride a “water sleigh” on Lake Merritt for a special holiday treat. Rides are $8 per person or groups can charter a sleigh for $120 and bring up to 19 people, leaving between 3pm and 8pm (or 4pm on weekdays).
Tours depart from the Lake Merritt Boating Center and include hot cider and cookies in the Holiday Room before boarding. A tour in the dark will allow you to enjoy the lights of Lake Merritt and be a part of it by riding on a lit-up water craft.
Caroling is encouraged and song sheets are provided.
