57th Annual Madeira Beach Festival of Lights Boat Parade December 9th, 2023

If you are looking for something unique, festive and fun to do with your friends and family this Holliday Season, consider entering your boat in the Lighted Boat Parade. On December 9th, the City of Madeira Beach will hold its 57th Annual Festival of Lights Boat Parade. The Parade is a ton of fun for all ages and really gets the Holliday season into full swing. Last year, we had over 40 boats participate and brought festive cheer to tens of thousands of spectators.

The Parade will begin at 6:30pm in front of American Legion post #273. From there we will head across the ICW to ROC Park in Madeira Beach where they will be hosting a Merry Market with food, fun, games and Santa! After that, the Parade will work its way South through all the finger canals in Madeira Beach ending in John’s Pass. The Parade is free for everyone, and there will be over $3,500 in cash prizes for the top 10 boats.

If you don’t have a boat, but would still like to watch the Parade, you can go to ROC Park (6:30pm) or John’s Pass Boardwalk (around 9:00pm). If you can’t make it on the 9th, Redington Shores Parade will be held December 10th and Treasure Island’s will be on December 16th.

To register for the 57th Annual Madeira Beach Boat Parade, come into the Ship Store @ 503 150th Avenue Madeira Beach Fl, 33708. Or call 727-399-2631.

Happy Holidays,
