Naples Christmas Boat Parade

Categorized as: Seasonal & Holiday
Event tags: Christmas, Holiday, Lights, Parade


There’s nothing cooler and truly Southwest Floridian during the holiday season than the Naples Christmas Boat Parade. Boats decorated with lights strung from bow to stern in clever holiday motifs fill Naples Bay on Saturday, Dec. 9 between 6:15 and 8:30 p.m. Thousands crowd the coastline as everyone from Santa Claus to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to assorted snowmen light up Naples.

A crowd favorite holiday event, dozens of boats take to the water to show off their best holiday look in front of a panel of judges. The boat parade, presented by the Marine Industries Association of Collier County, may be viewed from Naples City Dock, Naples Landing, Bayview Park and some nearby restaurants. A local charity, the Ricky King Fund, benefits.
