Annual Boat Parade



By Coastal Breeze News Staff

A12-CBN-12-11-15-2The weather turned out to be perfect for the Christmas Island Style Boat Parade on Saturday, December 5. Islanders watched the decorated boats pass by at every waterfront restaurant along the route. Again this year, the boat parade judges watched and worked from the second floor of the Snook



Inn, carefully taking notes on each vessel that passed. The Isle of Capri Boat Parade joined up with the Marco boats, although the Capri boats were not part of the judging. The judging was hard, and the competition fierce.
