Holiday Boat Parade

It’s that time of year again—to watch in wonder as the Holiday Boat Parade sets sails on December 14th at 6:00 p.m.! At River Front Park, just a short trip away from your accommodations at the Riverview Hotel & Spa, you’ll find a family-friendly, free event like no other. Boats will travel along the Intracoastal Waterway in New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater decked out in their finest holiday décor. You and your family will be delighted and dazzled by the spectacular bobbles, garlands, and of course, intricate lighting displays that adorn each watercraft that passes through. It’s a unique way to spend the holidays in true Floridian style and a great tradition to begin every year you come to visit. The boats will be judged based on their displays with the overall winner receiving $500 for their best holiday showing.
