Holiday Boat Parade – Jupiter Florida FL
Saturday, December 4, 2021
The Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade is a local tradition, full of the magic and whimsy of the Christmas season. Brought to you by the Marine Industry Association of Palm Beach County, the 2021 boat parade will be available for online viewing too. Boats will be traveling on the Intracoastal Waterway from North Palm Beach to Jupiter, arriving in Jupiter around 8:00 P.M. Click here to see the parade route, and get information about bridge openings!
This year’s boat parade and toy drive will benefit the Marine Toys for Tots and Little Smiles. The Marine Toys for Tots organization has distributed nearly 600 million toys to 265 million deserving children since 1947. For the last 22 years, Little Smiles Florida has served children of south Florida in times of homelessness, illness, and tragedy – lending hope and support when it matters most.
Our recently sold property on Edward Road, is only four lots from the parade route in Palm Beach Gardens!
