Christmas Boat Parade

We do things a little different here on the coast, for instance the Annual Christmas Boat Parade. Reminiscent of a floating, trailer park processional, the boat parade consists of about 40 Christmas light clad vessels and truly is a beautiful sight. Best observed from the seawall with lawn chairs and a cooler, the parade starts at Merry Pier and makes its way past St. Pete Beach and South Pasadena residences through the waters of Boca Ciega Bay.6pm-ish
