The 39th Annual Palm Coast Holiday Boat Parade, presented by the Palm Coast Yacht Club, will be held on December 3, 2022. With an unprecedented seventy-four (74) registered boats, last year’s Parade not only set a new record for Palm Coast, but it is now considered the largest community boat parade in the State of Florida.
Once again, the parade will be broadcast live by Flagler Broadcasting on KOOL-FM. Grand Marshalls will be Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly and The Honorable David Alfin, Mayor of Palm Coast.
The Parade will be held in honor of the late Joe Rizzo. A long-time champion of the Flagler County School System and a major mover and shaker in the Palm Coast community, Rizzo was executive director of the Flagler Education Foundation. Says Boat Parade Chair Sarah Ulis, “We are grateful to his widow, Teresa, for agreeing to have the Parade held in his memory.”
Lead boat for the Parade is “SunShine,” a fifty-five foot wide body Viking, owned by Palm Coast Yacht Club members Ken Mazzie and Donna Heiss.
Registration for the Parade is now open on the Yacht Club’s website, www.palmcoastyachtclub.com.
