St Pete Beach Holiday Boat Parade 2014

Boat Parade St. Pete Beach and Pasadena 2014

The 2014 St Pete Beach holiday boat parade for me is the beginning of the magic of the upcoming holidays.  The boat parade is enjoyed by both locals and tourist along its route. Lighted boats, jingle bells, holiday lights, Christmas music and excited children – we know the holidays have arrived on our beautiful beach.


This year the St. Pete Beach and South Pasadena holiday boat parade takes place on Friday December 5th, 2014 starting at 6pm.

Where to watch the St Pete Beach Holiday Boat Parade

The city of St Pete Beach host a boat parade viewing party and  holiday tree lighting at Horan Park and it has become a popular place to watch the boats.

This year the entertainment includes live music, hot chocolate, tree lighting event, art projects for the kids and of course Santa promised to be there.

The parade starts at 6pm from near St. Pete Beach Community Center – Horan Park is attached to the center.

Although it starts at 6 pm be prepared for delays – we are pretty casual here on the beach and it is the holidays after all.

SPB Community Center and Horan Park are located at
