Key West Lighted Boat Parade - This is one of the most popular Key West Christmas traditions because it blends traditional holiday lights with Key West flavor and charm. Boats get all dressed up with lights and fanfare and cruise down the harbor in front of Key West at night making a spectacular holiday light parade. Historic Seaport of Key West is the place to be to see the parading boats, and Schooner Wharf Bar is the hotspot for just about everything that night, since they sponsor the parade. It's free, and it starts at 8pm Saturday, mid-December, usually the second Saturday in December. One week after the Key West Holiday Parade.
The Lighted Boat Parade starts in Key West Harbor. If you want to enter your boat, call the Schooner Wharf Bar and register with them.
