33rd Annual BCYC Gulfport Christmas Boat Parade
December 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
COME FOR GULFPORT’S HOLIDAY HOOPLA; STAY FOR THE BOAT PARADE! Each year, boat captains from Boca Ciega Yacht Club and the general public come together to spread holiday joy by decking the hulls and heading out on Boca Ciega Bay to parade the BCYC way! Boat captains only need only a simple fee to enter – two (or more!) unwrapped toys for Operation Santa. Operation Santa, coordinated by the Gulfport police department, collects toys for the children of Gulfport whose holidays would be sadder without the generosity of the community. In turn BCYC depends on the generosity of our wonderful parade sponsors, who allow us to shower our participants with fun and useful prizes at the end of the parade. Everyone is a winner at this event and no boat goes home empty handed so sponsors are needed! If you would like to become a 2018 parade sponsor, contact parade chairs Samantha Ring at 727-254-1000 or Kim Westerfield at 727-239-2719 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
