Get in the holiday spirit at the annual Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade! The dazzling aquatic spectacle returns for its twenty-sixth year December 5, featuring dozens of holiday- themed boats and yachts traveling the Intracoastal, from North Palm Beach to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. For those who don’t live on the water, you can enjoy the show from various waterfront locations along the parade route, including North Palm Beach County Country Club, U-Tiki Beach, Pelican Club, Jetty’s, and Square Grouper Tiki Bar. (You can also watch the festivities live online.)
As always, the parade will culminate with a brilliant fireworks display at the lighthouse. Hosted by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County, the event will take place in tandem with an annual holiday toy drive in partnership with Little Smiles. Guests who bring donations are urged to wave a flashlight, and a volunteer “toy fleet” will make dockside pickups during the parade. You can also donate at Little Smiles drop-off boxes around town.
