Christmas Boat Parades

WORLDWIDE—This, The Log’s last issue of the decade, is published on Dec. 27 – two days after Christmas. Yet it still feels like the perfect time to share some facts about Christmas boat parades. Such parades are almost entirely found here in the United States, with states like California and Florida leading the way. But there are other places hosting annual Christmas Boat Parades, as well.

Below is a list of cities or regions hosting (or hosted) a Christmas boat parade. Which one(s) would you make an effort to attend, either as a boater or spectator? And, yes, the presence of Australia definitely makes this a “worldwide” list.
