About this spot
The Venice Christmas Boat Parade is a charity boat parade in Venice, Florida, USA. Private boat owners decorate their boats with lights and Christmas themed figures.

At 18:00 hrs on the first Saturday in December, Christmas decorated boats sail along the Intercoastal Waterway at a slow speed. They begin at the Albee Farm Bridge in Venice. They then sail south to a point just north of the Circus Bridge. The entire parade takes about an hour and 20 minutes for the first boat to reach the end of the parade. In 2021 there were over 40 boats from 13' to 53'(4 m - 13 m) in length.
