 DIFFERENT BY DESIGN

  • No worries from winds or tides.  It’s Smooth Sailing as the entire 6 mile  bridgeless parade is within protected waters of the PGI canal system.
  • 6 miles of Cheering Crowds Only 50′ Away!
  • Darkness not an issue: drop your boat off a day ahead and pick it up the day afterwards – Our neighborhood provides FREE dock space on a first come-first served basis.
  • Commercial Free – no political or commercial entries

More Total Participation Than Any Christmas Boat Parade on the Entire Gulf Coast !

UP CLOSE & PERSONAL !
