Although the traditional Island Christmas boat parade was cancelled due to hazards on the route, a group of holiday-spirited boaters have planned a Marco River-only boat parade (safe route) on Saturday, December 9th.
The best place on Marco Island to view the fun and watch Santa arrive by boat will be at the Marco Island Yacht Club. There will also be a raffle to win a three-month Yacht Club trial membership, with the proceeds going to support the Marco Patriots.
Cocktails start at 5 PM, with $40 per person dinner seatings at 6 PM, 6:30 PM and 7 PM. Dinner reservation required with credit card guarantee. Call the Yacht Club at 239-394-0199 (Ext. 301) to reserve your spot. Reserve now, seating is limited.
Attention Boaters: Boaters who want to join the parade should e-mail Peggy Frazier at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 906-228-6670 for details. There will be decorated boat participation awards, which include complimentary dinners at the Marco Island Yacht Club for the captain and first mate. Arrangements are being made to provide slips in MIMA that evening for parade participants as needed. Join the fun!
