Holiday Boat Parade

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Fort Lauderdale is always known for the extravagant boat parade they hold annually. The Winter Fest Boat Parade, which is the pinnacle of Florida’s Holiday Boat Parades, boasts over 1 million spectators every year. You can set up your viewing area anywhere along the 12 mile stretch the Parade floats through. You will see amazing light displays on vessels from all shapes and sizes along the New River in Fort Lauderdale and the Intercostal Waterway.

The event starts in downtown Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, December 15 at 6:30 PM

Cape Coral, Florida

Another great Florida Parade which takes part at Four Freedoms Park in Cape Coral, Florida. You can join the crowds to view the over 100 boats that partake in the parade each year. Each boat will be illuminated to amaze, most featuring a holiday theme. Bring your lounge chairs, blankets and even some hot chocolate to enjoy the amazing show that takes place annually.
