Winterfest Boat Parade, 1996
Winterfest Boat Parade, December 1996

Winterfest Boat Parade

The goal of the Winterfest celebration is to attract positive national attention to the Fort Lauderdale area, while providing the community with enjoyable and unique events. One of the best known components of Winterfest is its spectacular Boat Parade, held each December. More than 100 decorated corporate yachts and private boats with thousands of holiday lights float along the parade's ten-mile route from Port Everglades to Lake Santa Barbara in Pompano Beach. Boaters and spectators watch a brilliant fireworks display light up the parade's extended path.

Originally submitted by: E. Clay Shaw, Jr., Representative (22nd District).
