The Boynton Beach Holiday Boat Parade is hosted annually on the second Friday of December. The event features a variety of festively decorated boats and is a premier holiday attraction for the Boynton Harbor Marina.
Each year, a combination of privately owned and commercial vessels decked out with dazzling lights, holiday décor, and costumed captains compete in the modest, yet wildly popular boat parade. The festive flotilla lights up the Intracoastal waterways of beautiful Boynton Beach!
All local boaters are invited to participate at this year's Holiday Boat Parade. Entry is FREE, however all participants are required to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the captains' meeting. Download the entry form here.
The Boynton Harbor Marina, located at 735 Casa Loma Boulevard, serves as the official watch location for the Holiday Boat Parade in Boynton Beach. Activities at the Boynton Harbor Marina include festive music, children’s activities, a special visit from Santa, and food and beverages available for purchase from Two Georges Restaurant. Guests are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots.
In addition to the Boynton Harbor Marina, there are plenty of other great viewing areas available along the parade route, such as waterfront restaurants and parks.

- Banana Boat – 739 E. Ocean Ave.

Each year, the BBCRA partners with Marine Industries and Sea Tow to collect new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots. This is a wonderful opportunity to help a local child receive a gift during the holiday season. There will be boats traveling with the parade that will stop at individual docks along the parade route to collect toys. Simply waive a flashlight and a boat will come directly to you for pick-up. There will also be Toys for Tots donation boxes at the Boynton Harbor Marina, Banana Boat, Prime Catch, and Two Georges.
