Winterfest Boat Parade Raftup Party!!

  • George English Park

    1101 Bayview Dr, Fort Lauderdale, FL (map)

    26.140062 -80.114845

  • RATING - Beginner SK1, Night Trip, approx 2 miles each way, Low Speed

    There may be significant boat traffic on our way to the viewing area, but the water will be calm and we will be lit.

    Anchor and raft up, and watch the 45th Annual Winterfest Boat Parade with friends.

    This is always a nice festive trip with your fellow kayakers - come out and enjoy good company!

    We launch and leave from George English Park by 5:30PM, paddle south through the Victoria Park neighborhood to the New River, anchor and raft up in a little pocket about a hundred feet east of where we come into the river, and enjoy beverages and hors d' oeuvre while watching the parade. After the tail of the parade passes we will carefully work our way back to the launch point.

    Light up festively!! Being visible will be a good thing!

    RSVP and be sure to let us know what you're bringing in the comments!

    KAYAK RENTALS - Rentals are available for this trip!! Please visit our friends at All American Kayak to book and pay for your rental: (please check back for kayak rental info)

    GEAR - PFD, whistle, lights (get creative!!!), water, gourmet food, interesting things to drink...

    Think of it as the SFKM Winter Party - on the water, where we belong!!
