The annual St Croix Boat Parade takes place in the Christiansted Harbor on this Saturday, December 12. The parade is a favorite among locals and tourists and gets bigger and better every year. Recent parades have been featured on the Travel Channel as well as in travel, leisure and lifestyle magazines. Even Santa will make an appearance.
Dance with the Mocko Jumbies, finish last minute shopping and watch the boats parade around the harbor. Prizes are given for best boat. Prize categories include Best Sailboat, Best Power Boat 30′ & Under, Best Power Boat Over 30’/under 50′, Best Power Boat 50′ and Over, Most Innovative and Best Overall.
Sail boats, power boats, jet skis, even kayaks “deck the boughs” with holiday adornments. From atop the Hotel Caravelle, the boats are judged by a panel of “St. Croix Celebrities” and of course, by audience cheer. At the end of the event, when all of the boaters have cleared the parade route, the much anticipated GRAND FINALE of fireworks are ablaze in the night sky! Fireworks are sponsored by Hovensa.
Residents and tourists both join the fun – don’t miss it!
