PUNTA GORDA BOAT PARADE

Always the Saturday Night Before Christmas Eve

DECEMBER 20, 2014

 

 

This outstanding, up close and personal community event is unique to Punta Gorda.

 The warmth, fun and direct interaction between boat

crews and the excited close up spectators is not duplicated anywhere else but in our community.

Bring your bells and make a Joyous Noise for us all again this year.

With Blessings to all,

 Tom Little & Harris Bowers

Join With Us and See What Makes

a Punta Gorda Christmas so Special!
 

T’WAS THE SATURDAY NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS EVE AND ALL THROUGH THE ISLES, THE BOAT PARADE WAS AGLOW, CREATING THOUSANDS OF SMILES….

 

 

   
DIFFERENT BY DESIGN...
  • We’re Commercial Free ! No entry fees, no judging, just a great time!
  • No worries from winds or tides.  It's Smooth Sailing as the entire parade is within protected waters of the PGI canal system.
  • We have More Total Participation Than Any Other Lighted Boat Parade on the Gulf Coast !
   

UP CLOSE & PERSONAL ! 

Compared to big water parades our viewers are up close, as little as 25’ away.

  • SEE our amazing decorations!
  • HEAR our carolers!
  • WATCH our performers!
  • CHEER on your favorites with noisemakers, tambourines and sleigh bells!

 

   

FOR BOATERS:

  • No judging – just lots of fun!
  • Our  new 7.5 mile bridgeless route is totally within the protected canal system of Punta Gorda Isles
  • Join us for the pre-parade raft up, or simply show up at Albatross Lagoon click here for chart before sundown.
  • We conclude with a festive GRAND PARADE CIRCLE at YELLOW FISH LAGOON, where all captains & crews have the opportunity to view the entire parade.
