Fort Myers Beach Christmas Boat Parade

One of the things I do before a guest checks into The Favorite Sun, is to look for things to do in the area. While I was searching for things, the 27th Annual Fort Myers Beach Christmas Boat Parade popped up.

First I sent my guest information about the parade then sat down to write this blog. The Fort Myers Beach Christmas Boat Parade is something that I would love to check out. I live in New England, and when I see Christmas lights it’s typically while driving in the car with the heat turned to high. It is never while enjoying dinner and drinks at a water front restaurant, so to me, this seems like a must see event. The Fort Myers Beach Chamber is the host. Last year there were 30 boats participating and more are expected this year. The parade is Saturday December 5th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. The parade will pass though Matanzas Harbor and the first two canals of Siesta Isles.  There are some really great waterfront restaurants you can enjoy dinner and some drinks while watching the parade go by. If you are going to watch from one of the suggested restaurants I would get there fairly early to make sure you have the perfect view. You do not want to miss the boats going by decorated with hundreds of beautiful Christmas lights. I hope you enjoy this event. Maybe I will get there for the 28th Annual Fort Myers Beach Christmas Parade.

Salty Sam’s Video

Above I have included a video below that was produced by Salty Sam’s and placed on youtube.  It gives you a really good idea what the overall boat parade experience will be like.  They did a great job of putting together this video.  Salty Sam’s is a Marina in Fort Myers Beach.  They have rental boats available if you are interested.
