Winter in Miami is a dream, but so are the holidays! Even though you won’t find an inch of snow, our version of a winter wonderland is on the water. The Winterfest Boat Parade is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year. Fondly dubbed “The Greatest Show on H20,” you know the holiday season has officially started.

What Makes the Boat Parade So Special?

Imagine boats of all sizes decorated in different themes sailing down a 12-mile parade route. With over a million viewers each year and growing, it’s the start of an entire week of events ranging from kid-friendly venues to lavish black-tie events. While the Winterfest parade has its own intrigue, every year the host committee stays true to what this time of year is all about: Producing wholesome, unique, internationally recognized events reflecting the diversity and culture of South Florida.

If you’ve been debating getting a place near the water, this may change your mind. Imagine sitting on your private deck watching the parade go by? From private boats to corporate mega yachts, it’s a spectacle worth seeing. Filled with hundreds of thousands of lights and decorations, you’ll get to see celebrities and entertainers while listening (or dancing) to music and other entertainment.

Become a Part of the Fun

One of the best things about the Winterfest Boat Parade is the opportunity to be a part of the magic. You can purchase a ticket to ride on someone’s boat, or charter a boat and decorate it or have it professionally styled so you and your family can sail along too! There’s also a Winterfest Family Fun Day geared toward bringing family and community together.

Experience the magic of the holidays South Florida style! If you’re already a resident, you’re already at home. If you’re thinking about relocating, here’s one more reason to make it official. From the beautiful communities, weather and water, you’ll start to wonder why you didn’t make the switch a lot sooner. Full of events and things to do every day of the holiday season, the Winterfest Boat Parade reinforces that South Florida has their own version of the holidays where everyone gets to party every single day. No more wondering why we’re so popular. You get to experience it for yourself.

You can’t miss the Winterfest Boat Parade … it’s truly one of a kind!
