Come and join in on one of the Beaches' best holiday traditions.

For the last few decades, the people of Palm Valley have delighted in congregating and hosting an annual light and boat parade to celebrate the holiday season.

Often referred to as the Mardi Gras of lighted boat parades, the Palm Valley Light and Boat Parade is set apart by widespread community involvement and the large number of dock parties that accompany the event. Aided by the canal like topography of Palm Valley's Intracoastal Waterway, the parade route is unrivaled in its viewing proximity and participant interaction.

Consisting of over 7 miles of narrow channel and uninterrupted residential docks, the parade atmosphere is truly a unique experience unlike any other of its kind. Creating lasting memories for participants and spectators alike!
