The 29th Annual New Smyrna Beach Holiday Boat Parade

Those wanting to celebrate Christmas "Florida-style" won't want to miss the 29th Annual New Smyrna Beach Holiday Boat Parade. That's right, Christmas in Florida isn't just hanging wreaths, lights on the house, and Santas in the yard -- it's also about whose boat shines the brightest. From Pensacola down to the Keys, holiday boat parades are a time-tested Florida tradition. In New Smyrna Beach, boaters from the Anglers Yacht Club and Smyrna Yacht Club host this aquatic festival of lights. Watch them compete for a $500 grand prize on Saturday, December 10th. Boats will begin to line up at 5 PM and the parade will begin promptly at 6. Prime viewing locations include Riverside Drive and Outriggers Tiki Bar & Grille. However, you can't beat the view from our very own Grille at Riverview. Get here early to reserve your seats!
