Although the winter holidays are here, Florida boaters are still hitting the water… so why not combine the two? Brevard County brings that idea to life with its annual holiday boat parades!

Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island, Titusville, and Port Canaveral showcase these dazzling displays of light during the annual parades each year. Enjoy the usual holiday parade with a twist, as these boats decked out with lights reflect beautifully off of the water. It’s a holiday parade like you have never seen before!
