Tampa’s Largest Holiday Lighted Boat Parade Is Happening December 17!

Tampa’s Holiday Lighted Boat Parade happens this Saturday, December 17, along the Hillsborough River in Downtown Tampa.


Every year on the Saturday before Christmas, thousands of residents and visitors amass along the Riverwalk to watch the largest holiday boat parade in the area, with dozens of decorated boats sailing from the tip of Davis Islands to Sparkman Wharf.
