The holidays in Florida mean ’tis the season to decorate your entire boat in Christmas decorations and lights, and cruise around Port Canaveral. There’s no better way to get in the holiday spirit than watching the beautiful Christmas lights gleam off of the water.
Each year around Christmas, the Annual Christmas Boat Parade sets sail for Port Canaveral. Those participating in the parade bring out their top Christmas decorations and decorate their boats from top to bottom.
There are prizes for boats 30 feet or less and boats 31 feet or more. First place will win $1,000, second place winner wins $300 and third place will be rewarded $100.
The parade is best viewed from any of Port Canaveral’s waterfront restaurants or at Jetty Park. This free event is the perfect opportunity to take the family out for a night filled with holiday spirit.
Celebrate Christmas in Florida the right way; with friends and family by your side, a delicious meal on your plate and a waterfront view of the dozens of boats decked out in dazzling Christmas decorations.
