Indian Rocks Beach Holiday Boat Parade is a local Tradition
Indian Rocks Beach Florida – This past weekend our family went to Jimmy Iguana’s Restuarant and Open Air Waterfront Bar, a popular dock and dine (boaters always welcome here) in the Holiday Inn Harborside. It was the perfect spot to watch this years Indian Rocks Beach’s Holiday Boat Parade of 2007.
Now after a glorius week of 83 degree weather in Tampa Bay Florida, Saturday we were in for a change and the coldfront brought strong winds which started kicking up earlier that day as I watched the Clearwater Holiday Parade.
By sunset the tempatures had start dropping but nothing could dampen the spirits of those watching the dancing Christmas light on all the decked out boats along our intercoastal waterway. These Tampa Bay boaters were creative and colorful and each decorated boat was unique. Here are a couple of videos showing some of the boats in this years Indian Rocks Beach Boat Parade.
When you watch the videos you can hear the wind whipping out there. The captains did a great job keeping all the boats from bumping into each other in the narrow canal as it took an extra 30 minutes for some of the boats to make it to the parade. I hope the video gave you a glimpse into Christmas along the Tampa Florida Beaches.
There was a fabulous display of lights, decorations, animation and music on the boats that participated in this years Indian Rocks Beach Holiday boat parade. I guess the $4000 in prize money helped energize everyone’s Christmas spirit.
I took some pictures (however I need a better flash – rumor is Santa is hoping to bring one this year :-)) I also took some videos to share the experience for those that weren’t able to be with us in Indian Rocks Beach Florida this year.
