Celebrate the Holidays in Fort Lauderdale

Dec 9th, 2017 | Intracoastal Waterway
Hampton Yacht Group of Florida


Named one of the Top 20 Parades in the World, the Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade is not to be missed. Over 1 million people come out to watch the spectacle each year. It is Fort Lauderdale’s nautical version of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, traveling 12 miles down the Intracoastal Waterway. It takes about two and a half hours to view the entire procession from one location. Private boats, megayachts, showboats are all decorated and have celebrities, musical artists, and boating enthusiasts aboard. The event is televised and streamed online, so it is easy to watch from the comfort of your home. This year it will take place on December 9, 2017, beginning in the downtown area at 6:30 PM. Check out their website for a comprehensive list of the best locations to watch from as well as advice on boat decorating and lighting guidelines. For a more elegant evening with just as much excitement, attend the Winterfest Black Tie Ball.
