While other cities may decorate their homes with holiday lights, here in Greater Fort Lauderdale we dress up our boats and glide down the New River of Fort Lauderdale and north on the Intracoastal to Lake Santa Barbara in Pompano Beach. Experience Floats that REALLY Float during the 49th annual holiday boat parade. 

The Parade starts at Stranahan House traveling East along the New River in Fort Lauderdale to the Intracoastal Waterway as it continues North to Lake Santa Barbara in Pompano Beach. It’s 12 Miles of the “Best Show on H20.” The Parade takes approximately 2 and 1/2 hours to view from one location (starting locations stagger as you travel north).

Private boats to the giant showboats and corporate megayachts will be adorned with hundreds of thousands of lights, music, entertainment, decorations, celebrities, musical groups, beauty queens, and many other exciting entries expected to be viewed by over one million spectators. Boat entry fees start at ONLY $35.
