Lighted Boat Parade

Lighted Boat Parade

First of all, what more can one say about the Key West Lighted Boat Parade?  We all know this is one of the most epic events that takes place in Key West.  Hosted by the Schooner Wharf Bar it is definitely an event that goes down in the memory books.

To tell a little bit to those whom haven’t yet experienced it (without ruining it), it truly is a “must do” in Key West.  The Key West locals will deck their boats out in holiday decor. Shining lights, twinkling winkling stars and Santa riding in on a yacht. These locals will parade through the night with their yachts showing off to thousands of land watchers.

Everyone from near to far will enjoy a evening of holiday celebration by watching over 25 boats line up. They will slowly cruise through the Key West Bight to show off their twinkle. These boats in the Key West Lighted Boat Parade shine on in the vast night.  This display of creativity is surely like nothing you have seen before. 

For this very reason we know the importance for you to get the best seats in the house (and on the water)!  So sit aboard the Schooner America 2.0 and celebrate with us.  Warm up with some Hot Cider (spiked if you please) and enjoying some delicious Conch Soup from a local Key West Purveyor. As a result you will end up kicking back and relaxing as you partake in this historical tradition.

*Special Note: Classic Harbor Line’s Schooner Adirondack III won the 2010 parade.
