Holiday Boat Parade


Marine Industries Association Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade

Saturday, December 3, 2016 Starts at 5 pm

Viewing Locations: Plaza Down Under on the Riverwalk under the Indiantown Road Bridge
Harbourside Place



The Marine Industry Association of Palm Beach County will once again bring holiday cheer along the waterways of North Palm Beach to Jupiter! These spectacularly decorated boats, led by a traveling fireworks display, will light up the Intracoastal Waterways this Holiday season.

Harbourside Place and The Plaza Down Under on the Riverwalk will be the premier viewing location in Jupiter. Families will also be able to enjoy live music, strolling holiday characters, face painting, hot chocolate, games and more!

Harbourside Place and The Plaza Down Under on the Riverwalk are official collection locations for Toys for Tots, so please bring a new, unwrapped toy for this annual tradition of giving. You can also drop off your donation at Harbourside Place’s Management Office from Nov. 11 to Dec. 5, as well as the Jupiter Town Hall lobby or the Jupiter Community Center lobby now thru December 10, 2016.

$10,000+ will be awarded in cash & prizes to the best decorated boats in each category. To enter your vessel in the parade, please click here.
