Participating Boats: The parade features a wide array of boats, including yachts, sailboats, electric boats, and even kayaks, all decked out in elaborate holiday decorations. Participating boat owners put their creativity on display, transforming their vessels into floating works of art adorned with twinkling lights, festive decorations, and sometimes even synchronized music.


Festive Themes: Each boat in the parade embraces a unique theme, which adds to the excitement and charm of the event. Some boats may showcase traditional holiday designs with Santa Claus and reindeer, while others may incorporate playful themes like winter wonderlands, tropical escapes, or even popular characters from movies or cartoons.

People line the shores of the harbor, gather on docks, or even book dinner cruises to get a front-row seat to the illuminated procession. It's a joyous atmosphere filled with laughter, holiday music, and the sound of cheering as the decorated boats pass by.


Prizes and Awards: To encourage creativity and participation, prizes and awards are often given to the best-decorated boats in various categories. This adds an extra level of excitement as participants go all out to showcase their artistic talents and capture the attention of the audience.
