This December will be filled with cheer, goodwill and LIGHTS!! We are so excited about the 47th Annual Madeira Beach Festival of Lights Boat Parade. With HUGE prizes we are sure hoping for the largest parade in Pinellas County! We are anticipating over 50 boats…. If you have never entered one, and have a boat, you should. Our family has made it a tradition that is one of our favorites. It is also a great time to plan a party if you live on the water – there is talk of a prize for the BEST DECORATED HOUSE along the parade route!!!
So its time to get planning and decorating.
(I can already hear the holiday music & see the glitter and ribbons)
Here are the event basics:
Captain’s Meeting is on December 12th …. 6pm and held at the Madeira Beach Marina
This is where the parade route gets discussed, any questions answered and of course some EGG NOG to get in the spirit.
There is NO Entry Fee (FREE); Go here to sign up online today.
The Prizes are awesome this year. It has a main prize for BEST OVERALL – $2,500!
Then of course it pays out 8 places in both categories – Under 25′ boat and Over 25′
There is also a contingency prize for the BEST Old Salt Boat – $250
The Parade is on December 14th and starts in front of John’s Pass at 6:30pm
