The San Pedro Holiday Lighted Boat Parade

Back by Popular Demand – The San Pedro Holiday Lighted Boat Parade will be held on Saturday, December 6th starting at 6pm til around 9pm. This traditional event introduces the holiday season and brings us into the holiday mood with a fun event filled with twinkling lights, children’s laughter, and Christmas carols. The dazzling boat parade will start at 6pm and span from Wayo’s Beachside Bar, Boca Del Rio to Caribbean Villas Hotel. Our community will have amazing views of the festive boats from all over town!

We look forward to past participants as well as new additions lighting up the sea this holiday season! All boat owners and organizations are welcome to enter a boat in the parade and competition.

The Central Park Block Party will feature plenty of booths where you can buy food, special holiday drinks, gift items and enjoy fun activities such as taking your family pictures with Santa!

This year all schools and youth groups are invited to participate in the Christmas carol recitals. A prize shall be awarded for the best youth choir.

DJ Habo is our master of ceremonies and will keep the community in the holiday spirit while we listen to carols, watch the boat parade go by and of course, enjoy the Central Park Block Party awards ceremony after the parade.
