It begins at the C-15 canal, on the Boca/Delray boarder and continues south to the Hillsboro Bridge. The boats then turn around and head back “home”. Boats are adorned with lights and holiday decorations. Visit their website for specific viewing locations! Remember to allow time for holiday traffic when traveling to this event. If you love a boat parade, consider checking out the Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade on December 15th in Fort Lauderdale.
Give Your Holiday Tree a “Second Chance”
Help give your tree a second chance with the City of Boca Raton Holiday Tree Recycling program from December 26 through January 19, 2018.
With this program, residents can drop off their “clean” holiday trees at 751 Banyan Trail (east parking lot located adjacent to Mizner Bark Dog Park). The City’s Recreation Services Department will pick up the trees and chip them into mulch to be used at the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. ***Please make sure to remove ALL decorations including lights and tinsel from the tree.***
For single-family residents who are not able to drop off trees for recycling, please be sure to remove all decorations and place trees in the swale for regular vegetation collection.
For additional information please call 561-393-7810.
As always please confirm all information in this post with the event coordinators.
