Returning for the 37th consecutive year is Palm Coast’s cherished tradition, THE PALM COAST HOLIDAY BOATPARADE, set for December 7, 2019. Once again under the stewardship of the Palm Coast Yacht Club, the Parade is expected to exceed its record last year of 47 brightly lit and decorated boats. It is now generally considered the largest boat parade in Central Florida. Once again, the Parade will be broadcast live by KOOL 100.9 FM.
Boaters and fans are invited to start making plans for this colorful and exciting event which begins at 6 p.m. departing from the Cimmaron Basin south on the Intracoastal Waterway, turning at the Grand Haven gazebo back to the Club House Waterway. The Parade will be escorted by boats from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, Tow Boat US, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and the Palm Coast Auxiliary of the U.S. Coast Guard. Palm Coast Mayor Milissa Holland and Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staley will serve as the Parade’s Grand Marshall. Hundreds of spectators are expected to line the ICW cheering the boats on.
The Parade will pass the Tidelands, Marina Cove, and the Palm Coast Legacy Vacation Resort. It will then proceed under the Hammock Dunes Bridge along St. Joe’s Walkway and Canopy Walk, pass by Waterfront Park, Grand Haven, Island Estates, the Hammock, and Yacht Harbor Village before disbursing at the Clubhouse Waterway.
Registration is now open. For registration forms, boat captains are urged to contact Parade Captain Robert Ulis at 386-283-5166 or email@example.com.
