Clearwater Beach Florida – Ready to prepare for Christmas in Clearwater Beach Florida this year? Saturday December 12th, 2015 will be the annual Island Estates Yacht Club Holiday Boat Parade. This parade is held along the Clearwater Beach inter-coastal
waterways and starts at the Island Estates Yacht Club and weaves it’s way up and down the canals of waterfront Island Estates homes and condos who always have a great view of the festivities then also past Coachman Park. Many Island Estates homeowners participate in this Clearwater Beach boat parade.
Public Viewing Tip: The Island Estates boat parade will also travel toward Coachman Park which is a great public place to catch the parade.
The boats in the parade plan to arrive there at 8pm and then from there they will go under the Memorial Causeway Bridge, turning into the Clearwater Marina Channel and make their way to their final destination, the Clearwater Yacht Club judging stand, located on the southern most point of Clearwater Beach (just before the Sand Key Bridge)
The Clearwater Christmas boat parade is always held a week or two before Christmas and is a memorial to members of the Island Estates Yacht Club that died in the last year.
This is one of my favorite things about living in Clearwater Beach FL in December 😀 – Hope you enjoyed the video of a past Clearwater Beach boat parade – in this video we had a great vantage point from Belle Harbor Condos boat slips overlooking Mandalay Channel. What a beautiful night it was with a full moon and all.
If you have any photos or pictures I’d love to share them here too – email them to cyndee at sandbarstosunsets dot com – What’s your favorite thing to do to prepare for Christmas??
