Boca Raton Boat Parade 40th Annual Holiday Boat Parade December 17h 2016 (6:30pm- 8:00pm from the C-15 Canal at the Boca/Delray border and will travel south to the Hillsboro Blvd. Bridge.) Boca Raton’s Boat Parade has been one of the premier holiday events in South Florida with tens of hundreds of spectators lining the 6-1/2 mile parade route to view spectacularly decorated vessels of all sizes celebrating the holiday season in true tropical tradition. In past years, the parade featured over 30 beautifully decorated vessels celebrating the spirit of the season—traveling down the ICW in a spectacular display of holiday spirit. It is the hope of the organizers that the community will join us to make the 2015 Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade the biggest and best yet. The required captain’s meeting, held at the Boca Raton Community Center (adjacent to City Hall) at 150 Crawford Blvd on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, 6:00 pm.. Bleacher viewing at Silver Palm Park and Red Reef Park.
