The 32nd annual Fort Myers Beach Christmas Boat Parade is scheduled to roll down the Back Bay on Saturday evening. The parade begins at Salty Sam’s Marina and will pass many restaurants on the Back Bay such as Parrot Key Caribbean Grill, Original Shrimp Dock, Matanzas on the Bay, Nervous Nellie’s, Bonita Bill’s, Dixie Fish Co. and Doc Ford’s where you can kick back and enjoy the fun.
The cost is $25 for a non-sponsored boat and $50 for a sponsored boat.
In 2019 the parade was filled with 32 boats. To register a boat go HERE.
The Boat Parade is sponsored by the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber wants to remind everyone to abide by all the town’s COVID-19 rules, including the mask mandate and social distancing. The Chamber is working hard to make sure the event is safe for everyone and there’s always a possibility it could be canceled due to the uncertainty of the virus.
