Nov. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- This time of year families start to look forward to the joys of a holiday parade - happy elves tossing candy canes, Santa waving hello and the reflection of millions of lights. In Destin however, the Holiday Parade spirit combines with Destin’s reputation of being a city that loves the water and culminates in the Annual Holiday Boat Parade.
The 26th annual Lighted Boat Parade is ready to set sail on the evening of December 9th. Locals and vacationers love to grab their spot along the Destin harbor and enjoy this unique show that is a longstanding Destin tradition.
The Destin History and Fishing Museum will be hosting the event and they plan on having the boats lined up between 5:00 and 5:30 ready to head into the harbor. It’s important to get there early in order to have a good view. There will be winners in eight different categories based on boat size and the cost to enter is only $25 per boat. Judging will be done upstairs at Harry T’s on the harbor.
Harborwalk Village is going to commemorate this annual event with even more lights by donating a huge fireworks extravaganza at the end of the show. It will definitely be an exciting event for the whole family and one that is kind to the pocketbook as well. Which boat will shine the brightest this year?
