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.
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.
