Deck your hulls and kick off the holiday season on the St. Johns River as thousands of spectators view the parade along the banks. Captains and crews of boats and motor-assisted vessels of all shapes and sizes are invited to participate in the Jacksonville Light Boat Parade. Decorate your boats with lights, tinsel and your favorite holiday characters to help us celebrate!
The Jacksonville Light Boat Parade and fireworks show can be clearly viewed from the north and south banks of the St. Johns River. The parade route will begin at the Hyatt Regency Riverfront Hotel and follow the Northbank Riverwalk to the Fuller Warren Bridge. The parade will then cross to the south bank and follow along the Southbank Riverwalk. For more information on how you can register or participate, visit events.coj.net.
