2013 Christmas Boat Parade

The 28th Annual Sarasota Christmas Boat Parade of Lights will be held on Saturday December 14, 2013 beginning at 6:00 p.m. The best areas for viewing are Marina Jack Restaurant, Bay front Park, City Island and Centennial Park.

Celebrate  the 27th Annual Sarasota Holiday Boat Parade of Lights At Marina  Jack!
Saturday,  December 14th, 2013

There is a $25 cover charge and a minimum purchase of $50 per night of credit card purchase for the evening.  The table space will be available from 4:30pm - for the entire evening. When reservations are made parking passes will be mailed out to your address. 

Please call Ann for individual reservations @ ****Reservations[masked]**** Please mention "Tampa Bay Sailing Group" for table reservations so we can all sit together.  Remember:  Each person must call with a count and credit card number. 

The Parade route has been expanded by an additional turn marker at the southwest side of Bay front Park. All boats must now pass approximately one third of the Sarasota Bay side of Bay front Park within a few yards, to be considered for judging. The Bayfront Park spectator viewing area has been expanded to include the entire Northern tip of island near the fountain.. The VIP viewing area has been moved to the Marina Jack's fuel dock to allow additional space for spectators. This will improve spectator viewing from Bay front Park considerably. The SNN 6 local news staff will be covering the event throughout the evening at several areas throughout Marina Jack.

Portside Patio:
We will be reserving seating on the patio for this  evening with a 25 per person cover charge. The reggae band “Democracy” will be  performing from 6PM-11PM.

    Hi…. Great idea, however, if I remember correctly, MarinaJacks has an Advance Reservation Only policy for the Boat Parade, requiring a Credit card Minimum Per Person to hold tables. Groups or individuals can call and pre-reserve tables. This would probably be no problem for most of us, but I believe tables must be arranged in advance, and unusually the covered patio sells out in advance. MarinaJacks is absolutely The BEST PLACE to experience the wonderful boat parade (judging is in front of MarinaJacks). Please let me know how you would like us to proceed.
    Hope to see you all there!! Caterina
