HO HO HO and Happy Holidays! Lets get this Season started! 

#SoooBoca’s  Five in the Hive +++ list for fun events around beautiful Boca Raton this holiday season!


For those of you “new” to Boca, after the tree lighting at Mizner Park, the annual street parade is a great kick off to holiday season festivities!

The 47th Annual Holiday Street Parade in Downtown Boca is fun for all ages! It is truly a community gathering and a great time to see friends you have not seen all year!  The theme this year is“Light Up Boca,” and is on Wednesday, December 6 from 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.  The parade will move from SE 5th Street to North Mizner Park Boulevard with grandstand viewing at Sanborn Square. Definitely take advantage of Round the Town to pick you up and drop you off!

The 41st Annual Intracoastal Boca Raton Boat Parade is on Saturday, December 16, 2017 from 6:30 -8:00. This is a city sponsored event that starts at the C-15 canal which is on the Boca/Delray border. Boats, dinghies and yachts travel south towards the Hillsboro Bridge and then turn around and come back. It is a winter wonderland of lights, laughter and very unique to our South Florida holiday traditions.

If you want to enter the parade it is FREE so click on the link and check out when the captains meeting is. By the way…did you know there is $10,000.00 is cash and prizes to be won in a variety of different categories? So get your kayak ready to go peeps! Let the decorating begin!
