Miss Anne is once again donning reindeer antlers and a bright red nose for the holiday season! Cruises on the Bay™ by Watermark® is proud to announce Jolly Express Cruises for the 2012 holiday season. Jolly passengers will enjoy hot cocoa, holiday music and lots of holiday cheer on a spirited 45-minute cruise of beautiful Spa Creek in Annapolis. Taking place in the evening, Jolly Express Cruise passengers will have a wonderful view of the sparkle of Annapolis Harbor and waterfront properties along Spa Creek during the holidays. Ten percent of ticket proceeds will be donated to Historic Annapolis. Watermark is also encouraging Spa Creek residents to participate in a contest for “Best Illuminated Property” with two winning prizes of a private Jolly Express Cruise.
“We are happy to bring the Jolly Express back for a second holiday season. It was a popular activity for families in Annapolis last year and everyone just loves seeing Miss Anne all dressed up in her reindeer best. Think of it as a Spa Creek sleigh ride.” says Debbie Gosselin, president of Watermark, “In holiday spirit, this year we’re donating 10% of Jolly Express ticket sales to Historic Annapolis, an organization we work closely with on our walking tours and field trips.” Robert C. Clark, president and CEO of Historic Annapolis says, “Historic Annapolis is honored to be the recipient of a percentage of the proceeds from the Jolly Express. What a great way to celebrate the holidays. My family and I are going to make this a family tradition!”
Watermark invites Spa Creek neighbors to join in the fun for a good cause and a great prize. All Spa Creek waterfront property owners – and those who dock their boat on Spa Creek – are encouraged to decorate their waterfront properties and boats. Cruise passengers on the December 2nd cruises and also on the December 9th cruises will vote on the “Best Illuminated Property” on Spa Creek. One winner will be chosen on each date and each winner will be awarded with a private Jolly Express Cruise for up to 22 passengers.
