2011 Sarasota Christmas Boat Parade of Lights
The 25th annual Christmas Boat Parade of Lights will be held on December 10, 2011 at 6:00 pm. The spirit of the holidays is depicted in twinkling decorations as area boat owners show off their creative talents. Spectators gather at Marina Jack’s, Bayfront Park, City Island and Centennial Park to watch this festive holiday event.
There are five judging categories for the boats:
- Private (P1) 21-35 feet
- Private (P2) 36 feet and over
- Corporate (C1) 21-35 feet
- Corporate (C2) 36 feet and over
- Most Creative
The trophy for Most Creative is displayed for a year at Marina Jack’s Restaurants. Prizes and awards will be given at 8:30 pm at Marina Jack’s.
This year the parade route has been expanded by one turn marker. The viewing area has also been expanded to cover the entire northern tip of the Bayfront Park, giving all of the spectators a much better view of the parade. Enjoy!
