Tampa Bay may not exactly be a Winter Wonderland when the holidays roll around, but one thing the region has on those with snowier climates: spectacular lighted boat parades. Waterways around Pinellas and the surrounding area will be lit up throughout December for family friendly events that celebrate the season in a distinctly Florida fashion.    

Below is a list of some of the best upcoming parades in the area and where to watch.
