Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade

December 4, 2021

Intracoastal Waterway from North Palm Beach to Jupiter

Lighting Up the Holiday Season

Look up in the sky – not for Santa, but for fireworks, because it means the 27th Annual Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade on its way! See boats decked with dancing lights, holiday adornments, and more than a few surprises as they make their way up the Intracoastal Waterway from the North Palm Beach Marina to Jupiter. 

The Spirit of Giving

It’s a super festive way to say it’s the holiday season in The Palm Beaches. The Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade is also a water-based toy drive. For over 20 years, the parade has proudly partnered with the U.S. Marine Reserves Toys for Tots organization, collecting hundreds of thousands of unwrapped gifts for local kids in need. A "toy fleet" of boats with amber beacons and/or Toys for Tots signs will pull right up along parade route to pick up donations; just wave a flashlight to get their attention.

Or, grab dinner or drinks with a view and watch the festivities from waterside restaurants and bars like 1000 North, U-Tiki, Waterway Cafe, Jetty's, or Square Grouper Tiki Bar.
