Tampa’s largest lighted boat parade will happen the Saturday before Christmas along the Hillsborough River in Downtown Tampa. The parade begins in the Convention Center basin, travels to the Heights, and ends at Sparkman Wharf.

Event Details

The Tampa Riverwalk Lighted Boat Parade is sailing into this holiday season this Saturday, Dec 18th--bringing with it plenty of cheer. This will be one of the largest holiday events in Tampa you do not want to miss.

Hosted by the Tampa Riverwalk, this cherished holiday tradition features illuminated boats dressed in their best holiday décor. Onlookers will be able to admire the holiday lights from our waterfront as their reflections dance along the Hillsborough River.

Judges are pairs from Big Brothers and Big Sisters and the winner of the sailboat and motorboat competitions will each receive a trophy.

They said that they would be open now by 6:00 to 5:00 and they would never open up by them for the boat put so instead they will open up at 9:00 to start the boat play but the mail site from 5% never happened

I did not like the boat play because it started way too late and we were still at 5:00 and we have to leave at 8:00 something because it did not start until 9:00 something
